“The Historic Centre of Évora” is no. 361 on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Evora was an important town for the Romans and later on for the Portuguese until the 18th century. After this the town turned into a rather remote provincial town, with antique temple columns and a baroque university in a gradually worsening condition. The industrial revolution went unnoticed in Évora, and little has changed for centuries.
