Touring Evora, Portugal, June 30, 2016

Today we continued our walk around Evora seeing the sights until we took the train back to Lisbon!  Below are pictures of the medieval walls around the city. Then we arrived at Aqueduto da Agua da Prata (Silver Water Aqueduct).  Amazing work! Above and below are Moura’s Gate which was the original entrance to Evora.  The globular 16th-century Renaissance fountain is in the center of the square with Roman towers in the background.

Above and below is Igreja da Graca, an old church and convent, currently in use by the Portuguese Armed Forces.  Construction ended in 1511 and it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Next stop:  Lisbon and back to the boat!!  Enjoyed this unique visit!!
