Évora Hidden Treasures Tour

Tour Details

​Discover some of the lesser-known, and not less valuable, heritage of this amazing and charming city, on a private guided tour that will contribute surprisingly to expand your cultural horizons and to introduce you more deeply into the history of Évora, Portugal and the World.

Get to know the typical Alentejo handicrafts, such as ceramics and objects in cork, as well as the old “Chocalho”, distinguished by UNESCO in 2015 as Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

Discover the mysteries and hidden messages of the enigmatic “Painted Houses” and visit the luxurious “São Miguel” Palace, home to old orders of cavalry, former alcáçova of the military governor of Évora and place of residence of old kings and high nobility.

Finally, we propose a guided visit to the University of Évora, a former college of Jesuits, founded in the 16th century, with the mission of evangelizing and expanding Western culture to the former Portuguese Empire, which was present in territories as far afield as Brazil, Africa, India and Japan. Meet mysterious esoteric symbols present in the second oldest university in Portugal, enjoy 3 centuries of Portuguese tiles and imagine yourself a Jesuit student indoctrinated and about to embark to the new world!

Ideal visit for those who experienced a “Best of” or “Me, Évora & Wine” tours and want to deepen their knowledge about Évora and visit other monuments.
