    The Chapel of Bones - Around an hour and a half from Lisbon, Evora is a popular destination for Portuguese and foreign visitors alike. The biggest draw is undoubtedly the food and wine: Both Evora itself, and the wider Alentejo region in which it sits, are rightly renowned for the quality of the cuisine.

    There's more to this attractive city than just its mealtimes, however. The compact downtown area houses several architectural and cultural highlights, the most well-known of which is also the most macabre. Capela dos Ossos translates literally as "The Chapel of Bones," and human bones are exactly what you'll find inside. Thousands of them, in fact, stacked high from floor to ceiling along every wall of this small chapel.

    Stop At: Evora Plaza, Lote 4 Rua Luis Adelino Fonseca, Evora 7005-345 Portugal

    A timeless city in Alentejo, Évora is a UNESCO Site steeped in Roman and medieval heritage.
    The city’s golden age came in the 1400s when Portugal’s kings chose it for their home, and Évora’s streets still recall that influx of nobility 500 years ago.

    The Romans were the first to settle the town, building its defensive enclosure and leaving behind the ruins of a temple.

    Évora also has the second oldest university in the country, a venerable cathedral, a roll-call of churches and a chapel embellished entirely with human bones.
    Finally, the Neolithic monuments at Almendres and Zambujeiro show that there has been some form of civilisation in these parts since way before the Romans.

    Duration: 4 hours

    Stop At: Evora Plaza, Lote 4 Rua Luis Adelino Fonseca, Evora 7005-345 Portugal

In Evora district there are more than 10 megalithic sites, making this fenomenal testimony of prehistory in Alentejo one of the most important in the Iberian Peninsula and Europe altogether. These prehistoric monuments go back to the Neolithic period

    Stop At: Evora Plaza, Lote 4 Rua Luis Adelino Fonseca, Evora 7005-345 Portugal

    At the highest point of the city where Évora’s ancient forum once stood is what could be Portugal’s greatest Roman monument.

    This Corinthian temple was built in the 1st century and would likely have been devoted to Diana.

    Up close you’ll notice the difference in materials; the fluted columns are made from granite while the bases and capitals are marble that was brought here from Estremoz, 40 or so kilometres to the northeast.

    Diana Temple - This monument has survived so well because its walls were filled in during medieval times when it was turned into a small fortress, before being restored in the 1870s.

    Duration: 15 minutes
