These walls hold so much history it is well worth looking for them and thinking about how they must have been years ago. Any relic of this age and importance is worth a visit.

The walls are well preserved. There are inner walls from the Roman period and the outer walls are medieval.

Very well kept. A jewel to be preserved. I advise you to go around the wall walking or by car to get an idea of it all. Visiting only the interior we have no idea of architectural beauty.

The walls have 4 entrance and cover 1.2 kms. Some part of the wall was built during the Roman period. These walls reminded me of the ones in Avila in Spain.

Evora city walls mark the historic part of the city, the reason why everyone visits this charming city. So many European cities have let their city walls fall into disrepair or abandoned them entirely. But, fortunately, not Evora. They are beautiful. They stand as historic...More

There is tons of free parking right outside the wall near the Jardin infantil (playground).
