    Évora is ranked number two in the Portuguese most livable cities survey of living conditions. Due to its well-preserved old town centre, still partially enclosed by medieval walls, and a large number of monuments dating from various historical periods, including a Roman Temple, Évora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's also located in the Alentejo province and has great food, wine, and more relaxed pace of life.

    Evora is a photogenic place due to it having preserved many different layers of architecture from many traditions over the centuries. The town is full of small roads and little cafes here and there. We went there with a friend for photoshoot. To our surprise we found that there were no restaurants (just small cafes) open on that late Sunday afternoon in November. Lots of photographs were made. If we had had more time we would have also spent time on small roads as the countryside looked inviting with lonely bulls standing underneath large trees. We had city mostly to ourselves on that day.

In the heart of Alentejo, lies the city of Évora. It was known by the Romans as Liberalitas Julia, and vestiges from this period and the monumental imperial temple (Diana's temple), still remain. During the barbarian invasions, Évora was under Visigoth rule. It occupied a space defined by a Roman enclosure that had been modified. In 715, the city was conquered by the Muslims.
