A nice small village and an important site for the history of Portugal, whre one is able to follow, through the rooms in the small castle, the stpes of Pedro Iv and Miguel at an important meeting that put an end to a civil war. Nice architecture, wonderful view of the surroundings, fine small village around the castle.

Legacy from the Braganç dinasty, this is a beautifully preserved castle.
The columns and ceilings follow the Manuelino style with a twist. It is a great venue for photography lovers, especially from the top where miles and miles can be seen 360 degrees around.

If you want to have lunch, you should leave Evoramonte, turn back to Vimieiro and have lunch in Restaurant Moagem Antiga. There is also a museum that may be visited.

This is a very, very pkeasant obe day trip.

We walked here from the village below, walking up the roadway. Very steep but worth the walk. Pretty village with an artisan shop half way down the street. Lovely

A beautiful castle in the top of a hill with amazing views. The main building is unique. Different from all the others in Portugal. Worth to visit if you are somewhere between Estremoz and Evora.

This castle you can spot already from a great distance castelo de Evoramonte, it is from the medieval age and about 400 meters above sea level.
On the outside it is also very special, this is the first castle we have seen in this form and construction. Worth wile to see from the outside, once on the inside the visit cost about 2€ pro person and you have about 4 levels to see, but they are empty, so no furniture at all except some stones and all the levels are the same.
It is very clean on the inside, we arrived about 15 minutes before closing time and have seen everything.
Special location and form, we liked it.
