What people say

"The Cathedral of Évora, also known as Sé de Évora, is a grand medieval cathedral with Romanesque and Gothic influences. Built between the 12th and 13th centuries, it stands as one of the largest cathedrals in Portugal, boasting intricate architecture, a beautiful cloister, and a mix of artistic styles. You can purchase a ticket to visit the rooftop of the cathedral for just a few euros!"
"The Sé of Évora has the appearance of a fortress and is the highest point from which to admire a beautiful panorama over the entire city. I recommend you visit its interior too! 👣How to get there: reachable on foot from Roman Temple (220m,3min).Bus stop: Rua Menino Jesus. Ticket cost: complete visit (Sé, cloister, panoramic view and Museum) 5€."
"After climbing all the way up, you reach this unmissable building, Basilica Sé de Nossa Senhora da Assunção, the largest medieval cathedral in Portugal. The church and the cloisters are worth a visit but please make sure not to miss the terraces. There you can contemplate the most stunning view over Évora."
