There is much to see in Evora. Even things done in one day are too much for one post. So, churches which we visited are shown in this post and the rest is shown in alternate post.
Cathedral in Portugal is named Se which stands for Sedes Episcopalis (the seat of the bishop). Evora cathedral is the largest medieval cathedral in Portugal, built between 1283 and 1308. The architectural style transited from Romanesque to Gothic. It is completely made of granite. The cathedral was enriched in 15th, 16th and 18th century. It was the ancient religious seat but gradually gave away to Lisbon.
Apart from the exquisite interior as the most important fortified cathedral, the most interesting part is the roof top and the views around.
Very nice stone sculptures show up between the Se Cathedral and the Spring of Porta de Moura.
The Igreja da Graca (Church of Grace) or Convent of Our Lady of Grace, was founded in 1511 and is an important Renaissance religious monument of the city. At the front you can see the statues that have been known for centuries as the 'Boys of Grace'.
Shortly after the Igreja da Graca, we saw a stork with its nest on the steeple of Igreja Senhor Jesus Pobreza (Church of Lord Jesus of Poverty). So cute!
