    ... around Evora has been inhabited for over 15,000 years.

    Lucia told us about the 16th century architecture that surrounded the Praca do Giraldo. It is some of the best preserved in the country. The square is named after Giraldo who was the first to scale the walls in the war that defeated the Moors in 1148.

    The highlights of our tour included the cathedral. It was started in 1186 and consecrated in 1204. It was finished in 1250. Of course, a cathedral ...

    ... get to the 16th century Chapel of Bones which contains the bones of 5000 people.

    The chapel is a large rectangular room with dim golden mood lighting. The surfaces of all walls are the knobby ends of patella and skulls. Pillars are adorned with laterally stacked thigh bones.

    ... fruit, no eggs, which is fine with us.

    The historically rich medieval walled castle college town of Evora is #5 on Lonely Planet's "Top 27 Experiences" for Portugal and #1 in the Alentejo Region. We set that as our goal and planned a meandering route along a reservoir by the Spanish border to get there.
