This tour invites you to know Évora, classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage City, due to its excellent preservation along the centuries. We can even tell you that little difference exists between walking in Évora today or some centuries ago. This town has been developing itself without losing its primitive characteristics. That's why it deserved this "prize" from UNESCO. The tour will continue to the "eternal bride" town of Arraiolos, where you will meet the typical Alentejo village: the white immaculate houses framed with blue or yellow stripes, the castle at the top of the village that keeps guard over the fields of Alentejo, the typical slow pace of its people that know very well the "art of living" and the embroiderers working in the streets making the famous and genuine Arraiolos carpets.
