Evora City in Portugal

In this interesting Hub, Dale Mazurek take us on a trip around Evora City in Portugal.  Evora is situated in the far south of Portugal near the Tagus River and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Evora has a well-preserved historical centre and the central part of the old town is surrounded by fortified walls.  The city was founded around 2000 years ago by the Romans, and there are many ancient monuments and old buildings to be seen in Evora.  Evora was also occupied by the Visigoths and the Moors before it came under Portuguese rule.
