Yesterday we traveled from Lisbon through the countryside to Evora. The weather was gloomy and rainy most of the day. Surprisingly our stops included a welcomed break in the rain.
We explored Arraiolos, a village with a quaint museum of ancient tapestries. Midday took us to Monte da Ravasqueira, a delightful complex with a great Carriage Museum, a winery including a delicious lunch and a gift shop where we purchased some excellent wines.
By mid afternoon we arrived at our hotel, Pousada Convento de Evora. Built in 1485, a hotel since 1965. All in all, a delightful day.
