What to expect

Do you know the magical (and pragmatic) properties of the “Évora yellow”? On this self-guided walk you’ll learn about the local history of Évora and enjoy its most charming spots. Solve fun location-based riddles to discover the architectural link between Évora’s aqueduct and one of Lisbon’s famous landmarks, unearth the original name of Roman ruins, and find out which figures the locals call “the children of Graça.” All while exploring the city’s cobbled streets away from the crowds.

This playful walk across Évora sharpens your senses and encourages you to appreciate the most wonderful – and often hidden – details around you. Whether you know Évora or just start exploring here, this experience gives you a perspective on discovery that will inspire your curiosity wherever you go next. This experience was created by Secret City Trails co-founders, Kristina & Wendy.

Local wonders you’ll discover on this walk include:

  • A serene green oasis that is Jardim Público

  • A magical Roman temple (also a UNESCO World Heritage Site!)

  • Panoramic views of the city’s surrounding plains

  • The beautiful church and convent, Igreja da Graça

This discovery walk is an educational and fun activity for friends, couples, families with kids, curious locals, visitors, and team building. You can fully enjoy this experience of connecting with the city while staying in your own group.
