Photographer's Note

On our trip to Portugal i had the opportunity to make a quick stop in Evora in Alentejo. Unfortunately we had only 2 hours of time, which is not nearly enough to see this beautiful city! At least i had visited the Alentejo, which is the place a former working colleague of mine was born and of which he had told me so many stories of for years.
Evoras history is more than 200 years old. It has seen many rulers, romans, celtics, northern african rulers... Located some kilometers away from the coast, evoras climate is different from the typical "Costa Verde" of portugal. It is much drier and summer temperatures are also less moderate. The historic inner city of Evora, as well as the old roman temple of Evora are of a stunning beauty and in part protected world heritage.
