Day 5 : Lisbon
After breakfast, proceed for a full day tour to Evora, driving to inland Portugal region of Alentejo where you can explore the cork Oak forest and discover the roman and old city. Begin the tour at Giraldo Square, the living center of Evora, full of architectural styles, from Moorish arches lined up in the Square, to the fountains of the Renaissance and the Gothic church of Sao Francisco. Then head to one of the major landmarks in Portugal, the Roman temple, also known as the Temple of Diana. Its powerful front with 14 columns in well-preserved granite astonishes those who see it for the first time. Next, you can explore the Bones Chapel on your own. For some people, it is a dark place, for others a fascinating space consisting of hundreds of skulls and skeletons from about 5000 monks of the sixteenth century. Then go to the Cathedral of Evora, a Roman-Gothic church from the XIII century where you can climb the tower and get a breathtaking view of the city and the fields surrounding it.With its unique climate conditions, the vineyards of the region produce some of the best Portuguese wines. You will go to a farm where you can taste the best Alentejo has to offer. On the way back to Lisbon stop in Arraiolos and marvel at its magnificent castle wall and the famous carpets of Arraiolos. You can see firsthand how they are manually produced. Overnight in Lisbon.
