    ... blue tile. We then walked to the Catedral de Évora (Cathedral) which is one of the oldest and most important of all monuments in Évora. On each side of the Catedral there are two massive towers which you can climb to get to the roof of the Cathedral were you get to see a Panoramic view of Évora!

    ... the stones on a Roman road that formed a major entry point to the city. Cars are still driving across them but they needed to be straightened. Lousy Roman engineering didn't even get 2,400 years on the warranty.
