Welcome to a very special tour for very special people in a very special Unesco Heritage City! Our goal is to share the beauty of Évora with people from all around the world: its history, stories, customs, and rich culture embraced by the mix of all the people who lived here for more than 2000 years.

Starting our journey from the gorgeous Giraldo Square, we will travel through time and explain the different cultures, traditions and ways of life of our city. Already the Celtici where around the area, and were followed by the Romans who built a temple that’s still standing! Did you know that Évora also has an important Jewish past?

You won’t be joining classical historical or architectural tour, but a tour conducted by enthusiastic, friendly people. We want our tour to be a unique continuous association between history and what was going on people’s mind through the centuries with practical examples: the ones you would never see if you wouldn’t join this tour!
