    Enchanting Evora

    May 19, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    The 45 minute drive to Evora was lovely. More cork trees, eucalyptus trees, and storks—we even saw 13 nests on one high transmission line tower! We also saw ruins of a castle on a hill, cattle, and sheep. Evora is a city from the 1500-1700s with narrow winding streets. We parked outside the city walls, and just walked around. It was funny to see a car parked in the middle of a narrow street--they don't care that they block the road.Read more

    Roman Evora

    May 19, 2018 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 75 °F

    The town is known for its Roman architecture from the first century: city walls, an aqueduct and a temple. The aqueduct is in wonderful shape and the highest arch is 85 ft. high.

    Evora

    March 24 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Heute Morgen hieß es dann erstmal ein wenig ausschlafen. Nach dem Frühstück in der Unterkunft starteten wir Richtung Evora. Dies ist eine historische Stadt, welche zum UNESCO Weltkulturerbe gehört, in der Alentejo-Region.
    Ich persönlich fand die Stadt nicht sonderlich spektakulär, ausser der römische Tempel im Zentrum.
    Dennoch lud die Altstadt zum Schlendern durch die Gassen ein. Wieder herrschte eine Ruhe und so konnten wir super entspannt den Vormittag dort genießen.

    Evora

    April 20 in Portugal

    We woke up this morning at 8:30 for the first full night sleep since we arrived! No one woke up in the middle of the night! We feel amazing. We had breakfast in our room and then Matt took the kids down to the Kids Club to play while we packed up the room. Then we were off! We took a taxi to the airport to pick up our rental car (we had a manual transmission so didn't feel like making Matt come all the way back into the hilly city). They somehow messed up the carseats so the kids are in boosters - not ideal but we are making it work. We got a little lost coming out of the airport but finally found the road and were on our way to Evora! After about an hour and a half we arrived at the old town of Evora which is stunning. Beautiful white washed houses, cobblestone everywhere withe huge aqueduct running around the entire city. We were hungry but all the restaurants were packed and the kids were acting up a bit. We finally found a place that had a tour group cancellation and could seat us. We got a litre of much needed wine and the kids were (reasonably) well behaved for once. We waited for ages for food but once it came it was unbelievable. We got chicken stroganoff and I think it was the best we have ever had - so good! We got some more wine and hung out for a bit before putting the kids in the stroller and heading to walk through Evora. I wish we had more time to explore as the town was truly lovely. We saw old Roman ruins and walked over to the Osso Chapel (chapel of the bones) but didn't have time to go in. The kids literally ran through the town on the way back to the car. Then it was off to our next destination in Alentejo!Read more

    Evora- a hidden gem

    May 4 in Portugal ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Als wir erfahren müssen, dass der Küstennationalpark des Alentejo seine Strände dermaßen gut schützt, dass ein Zugang fast nicht möglich ist, geschweige denn Stellplatzmöglichkeiten bietet, biegen wir etwas frustriert ins Landesinnere ab. Der einzige Campingplatz ist in Evora vermerkt. Wir entdecken eine alte Bischoffsstadt mit beeindruckender Festungskirche und einer berüchtigten Knochenkammer. Sogar eine Art von Bahnstrassenweg gibt es, auf dem wir uns über viele Fahrradstunden die verlassene Landschaft erholpern. Touristisch erschlossen ist anders - doch liegt der Reiz dieser Region unter anderem gerade in dieser völligen Weltvergessenheit. Das erleben wir in den folgenden Tagen auf unserem Roadtrip durchs Hinterland sehr deutlich.Read more
