Art-General, Évora: 4 reviews and 4 photos
Near Évora there is a small town called Estremoz. Estremoz is famous nationwide and also in other countries due to its white marble – it is called the “white gold of Estremoz”. I’ve read that Portugal is the second European supplier of white marble, after Italy. About 90% of Portugal’s white marble extraction is done in Estremoz area. So, in Évora you will find some beautiful sculptures made in this “precious” stone, such as the one on my photo. This sculpture is located on a small garden by the Roman Temple.
