With an excellent location, Évora is an hour and a half away from Lisbon (134 km) and two hours from Faro (226 km). If you want to go to Spain, it’s five hours to Madrid (504 km) and three hours to Seville (326 km). With many buses to all cities, getting around to visit any place will be easy.

For those who do not want to live with too much “city lights”, as in the capital Lisbon or in Oporto, but who also do not like too peaceful cities, Évora is an ideal choice. With many restaurants, terraces and a shopping mall, the city is an invitation to live in an open air museum.

The University of Évora is the second oldest in the country, founded in 1559, and has a vast list of graduate, master and doctoral courses. Do you want to see more about the university? Click here.
