"Evora Monte" Évora Monte by solopes

Évora Monte Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 26 photos

90% of the 10% of portuguese that heard about Evoramonte know that is was the place of an agreement to end a civil war. I was among them. Passing by, I discovered that it still has a castle, ans the old walls. Searching Internet I learned that:
"Evoramonte, about 35km/22mi northeast of Evora, is worth a visit. Prominently situated above the newer town on a hill (474m/1,555ft), the old town center, with its winding alleys and little white houses, is still surrounded by its walls. At its highest point stands Évoramonte Castle, built in the 14th C. on the ruins of a Moorish predecessor and rebuilt after an earthquake in 1531. The recently restored, yellow painted fort can be visited. A plaque on the wall of a house on the left side of the main street, past the walls, commemorates the fact that the Treaty of Évoramonte concluding the "Miguelist" wars was signed here on May 26, 1834.""
