This town turns around this place. There is always a sunny side and there is always other in the shadow. Everyone will find there something to please.

All roads lead from this square. A lively place to visit and to get your bearings for any walking tour of Evora. Several cafe's surround the square along with stores.

Lively central square in Evora. Pretty architecture and several restaurants, etc. When we were there they had a performance of fado and other music on a summer evening.

It's a fact, all streets lead to Praça do Giraldo, it's a nice place, the largest square in Evora, with stores, cafés and monumental structure. Always worth a visit.

This is the central square of the town with a pleasant fountain, a big church and some cafes. Lots of people around. Major city streets radiate off of it.

This is a nice plaza surrounded by buildings with interesting architecture. In the center there is a fountain. Some of the building are undergoing restoration, but it is still a good place to choose a café and take a break.

As the city center, Praca do Giraldo is very well preserved with its churches, shops and coffees. Great place to have a coffee on a Sunday.

We made a bit of a trip planning mistake in doing a day trip to Evora on a Sunday, as it's a sleepy little town with most shops closed and this normally lively square was pretty quiet and one of the churches covered for reconstruction.
