... we struggled to park the car. A large event (some festival or other) had been held over the previous weekend and the major car parks we had identified were in the process of removing a huge tented village, funfair and retail stalls. Eventually we came across some spaces in a side street and set off on foot for the city centre where first stop was for lunch in Giraldo Square, lined on all four sides by fine white and ochre buildings, many with the characteristic wrought ...

could of the town in the quiet and cool early morning hours, hit ...
... and then a delicious lunch. After lunch we toured the Estate's carriage collection. The final stop before reaching Evora was the most unexpected of my trip to Portugal--the Almendres Cromlech. This is the oldest known stone circle in Europe dating from the 5th and 4th milliniums. It consists of 92 standing stones in two circles with different equinoxial directions, and it's latitude allows viewing of ...
