Évora city / cidade de Évora
Évora city / cidade de Évora
English and Portuguese English Evora is located in the Alentejo province, a region of wide plains to the south of the Tagus River (Rio Tejo in Portuguese). The distance from the capital, Lisbon, is some 130 km. History Evora has a history dating back more than two millennia. It may have been the kingdom of Astolpas., and may be named after ivory workers. It was known as Ebora by the Lusitanians, who made the town their regional capital. The Romans conquered the town in 57 BC and expanded it into a walled town. Vestiges from this period (city walls and ruins of Roman baths) still remain. The Romans had extensive gold mining in Portugal, and the name may be derived from that oro, aurum, gold). Julius Caesar called it "Liberalitas Julia" (Julian generosity). The city grew in importance because it lay at the junction of several important routes. During his travels through Gaul and Lusitania, Pliny the Elder also visited this town and mentioned it in his book Naturalis Historia as Ebora Cerealis, because of its many surrounding wheat fields. In those days Evora became a flourishing city. Its high rank among municipalities in Roman Hispania is clearly shown by many inscriptions and coins. The monumental Corinthian temple in the centre of the town dates from the 1st century and was probably erected in honour of emperor Augustus. In the fourth century, the town had already a bishop, named Quintianus. During the barbarian invasions, Evora came under the rule of the Visigothic king Leovirgild in 584. The town was later raised to the status of a cathedral city. Nevertheless this was a time of decline and very few artefacts from this period remain. In 715, the city was conquered by the Moors under Tariq ibn-Ziyad, who called it Yeborah. During their rule (715–1165), the town slowly began to prosper again and developed into an agricultural centre with a fortress and a mosque. The present character of the city is evidence of the Moorish influence. Evora was wrested from the Moors through a surprise attack by Gerald the Fearless (Geraldo Sem Pavor) in September 1165. The town came under the rule of the Portuguese king Afonso I in 1166. It then flourished as one of the most dynamic cities in the Kingdom of Portugal during the Middle Ages, especially in the 15th century. The court of the first and second dynasties resided here for long periods, constructing palaces, monuments and religious buildings. Evora became the scene for many royal weddings and a site where many important decisions were made. Particularly thriving during the Avis Dynasty (1385–1580), especially under the reign of Manuel I and John III, Evora became a major centre for the humanities (Andre de Resende - buried in the cathedral) and artists, such as the sculptor Nicolau Chanterene, the painters Cristovao de Figueiredo and Gregorio Lopes, the composers Manuel Cardoso and Duarte Lobo, the chronicler Duarte Galvao, and the father of Portuguese drama, Gil Vicente. The city became the seat of an archbishopric in 1540. The university was founded by the Jesuits in 1559, and it was here that great European Masters such as the Flemish humanists Nicolaus Clenardus (Nicolaas Cleynaerts) (1493–1542), Johannes Vasaeus (Jan Was) (1511–1561) and the theologian Luis de Molina passed on their knowledge. In the 18th century the Jesuits, who had spread intellectual and religious enlightenment since the 16th century, were expelled from Portugal, the university was closed in 1759 by the Marquis of Pombal and Evora went into decline. The university was only reopened in 1973. In 1834, Evora was the site of the surrender of the forces of King Miguel I, which marked the end of the Liberal Wars. The many monuments erected by major artists of each period now testify to Evora's lively cultural and rich artistic and historical heritage. The variety of architectural styles (Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline, Renaissance, Baroque), the palaces and the picturesque labyrinth of squares and narrow streets of the city centre are all part of the rich heritage of this museum-city. Today, the historical centre has about 4000 buildings and an area of 1.05 km?. Main sights Agua de Prata Aqueduct (Aqueduct of Silver Water): With its huge arches stretching for 9 km, this aqueduct was built in 1531–1537 by King Joao III to supply the city with water. Designed by the military architect Francisco de Arruda (who had previously built the Belem Tower), the aqueduct ended originally in the Praca do Giraldo. This impressive construction has even been mentioned in the epic poem Os Lusiadas by Luis de Camoes. The end part of the aqueduct is remarkable with houses, shops and cafes built between the arches. Cathedral of Evora: Mainly built between 1280 and 1340, it is one of the most important gothic monuments of Portugal.
