Evora is the largest city in the Alentejo region of south-central Portugal. The land surrounding Evora in the Tagus River Basin is known for producing wheat, olives, grapes and wine, and for centuries Evora has served as one of the country`s main agricultural centers.
Evora is also well-known for its rich history. Records note a settlement in present-day Evora over 5,000 years ago! The city has been conquered by the Romans, the Visigoths, and the Moors, and Evora`s past can be seen up-close in the UNESCO World Heritage-certified historic center. Visitors are enthralled by the Cathedral of Evora (located on the city`s highest hill) and the lovingly preserved ruins of a Roman temple, among other attractions.
