Tour information

Cathedral and Museum of Sacred Art

Dedicated to Santa Maria, the Cathedral of Évora was built in the 13th and 14th centuries, under the royal patronage of D. Afonso III and Bishop D. Durando Pais, in the Romanesque and Gothic styles, highlighting the ogival portico, garnished by sculptures of the Apostolate and the cloister. Previously, there was another episcopal seat, but its location is unknown. The chancel is from the 18th century (baroque style), designed by the German architect Frederico Ludovici. Inside, there are many architectural and artistic elements of relevance, such as the choir chair, the Renaissance organ, the pieces of the Museum of Sacred Art (sculpture, painting, vestments and jewelery), among others

National Museum Frei Manuel do Cenáculo (Museu de Évora)

It was officially created in 1915 and went through several vicissitudes until it was definitively installed in the old Archiepiscopal Palace (late 16th century and early 17th century). Its historical origins are linked to the collections gathered by Frei Manuel do Cenáculo Vilas Boas and greatly added by artistic values ​​from the extinct religious houses and private donations. It underwent a profound remodeling in 1940, under the guidance of Professor Mário Chicó, valuing the following sections: Archeology, Architecture, Sculpture, Epigraphy, Heraldry, Jewelery, Decorative Arts and Painting, this nucleus being the most notable.

Church of São Francisco and Capela dos Ossos

Building from the 15th and 16th centuries, in the Manueline-Mudejar and Renaissance style, replacing an earlier Gothic temple, of which some remains still remain. The Royal Palace was annexed and was considered a Royal Church, in which important ceremonies were held, with the wedding of Prince D. Afonso with D. Isabel de Castela, in 1490.

The facade of the church is characterized by the volume of the crowns and the portal is decorated by the royal emblems of D. João II and D. Manuel I. The interior features a single nave, rectangular in shape and in Latin cross, with emphasis on the altar -mor and the Chapel of the Third Order of S. Francisco, in Baroque style. The biggest popular curiosity lies in the Chapel of Bones, with three naves completely formed by human bones (17th century).

The convent was demolished in the late 19th century.
