Évora
One of the best examples of the golden age of Portugal that followed the Earthquake of 1755. This is UNESCO's introduction after Évora was classified as World Heritage in 1986. The reasons for this distinction are not just the medieval Roman walls and from the seventeenth century that surround the city. This was already an important administrative and commercial center in the times of the Romans, who left a living testimony in the Temple of Diana. The unique atmosphere of this city is also seen in the old quarters, in the streets with unusual name, in the busy Plaza de Geraldo and in the excellent quality of the gastronomy and the wines that can be tried in any of the diverse Local restaurants. In addition it is a city that has much to offer in terms of craftsmanship and culture, having often spectacles of dance, music and theater.
