The historic city of Évora is one of Portugal’s most enchanting and beautifully preserved medieval destinations. Within its 14th century walls narrow winding lanes, cobbled squares and brightly coloured houses fill the historic centre, which is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. The granite and marble Templo Romano is one of the best-preserved Roman temples on the Iberian peninsula. Alongside the medieval cathedral and cloisters it brings Évora’s historical past to life. The city is also awash with restaurants serving up delicious hearty Alentejo cuisine and local wines.
As a gateway to the surrounding Alentejo region, Évora also offers great access to some of Portugal’s beautiful rural landscapes. From walking holidays to cultural city breaks there is something for everyone.
Located approximately 4km south of the city, Évora Airport is an ideal base if you’re flying to or from Alentejo. It’s also a convenient alternative for those wanting to access Lisbon – the Portuguese capital is about an hour away by road. The airport features dedicated check-in and passenger processing facilities as well as a dedicated fuel service for general aviation customers. It is open from dawn to dusk and out of hours fueling is available on request. Both Jet A-1 and Avgas are available here.
