Owner description: Roman-Gothic 12th century cathedral. Guard a valuable treasure. Spectacular visit the cloisters of the cathedral and coverage, with magnificent views of the historic center. Is part of the monumental complex as a Unesco World Heritage

This cathedral has to be one of the very few with a statue of a pregnant Virgin Mary. Beautiful gothic church with influences from the colonies. The gilt work is also wonderful. I wouldn't miss it on a trip to Evora

I still remember this unusual statue after many years. Where else can you see a depiction of a pregnant Virgin Mary? So glad it is there for all to see. How daring !!

We have visited many churches, cathedrals, and chapels during our swing through Portugal this Spring. This cathedral offers the option of climbing to the roof. Of course, there is a fee, and it depends on what you want to see. There is the sanctuary, the cloisters, the church treasures, and the roof. The view from the roof over the surrounding area is the best in Evora, and I think one of the “must do” activities here.

When you go in....lot’s of ticket options....definitely pay the extra 1 euro to go up the tower (and on to the roof). That was the absolute best part....so pay the extra euro. (a decent number of stairs, but worth it).

We really did not like this- it is very dark, austere and forbidding! Perhaps the ugliest Cathedral we have seen.
