Évora Museum

The Évora Museum (…) was renovated in 2009. It was first inaugurated in 1915, showing an exhibition of several pieces pertaining to the Public Library Director, Augusto Filipe Simões, who collected several Roman, Visigoth and Arab pieces of the 1870 decade, from the assets of King D. Manuel Palace, the Roman Temple and the Giraldo Square.  

The most significant pieces of the Évora Museum are thirteen panels representing the life of the Virgin, and six smaller ones representing the Passion of Christby an unknown painter of the Bruges School in the mid XV century.  

This Museum has more than 20.000 pieces on the most varied themes, thus being one of the most important museums in Portugal.  

It also frequently shows interesting temporary exhibitionsand offers day trips on Saturdays, which take locals and tourists to other destinations in the Alentejo and other areas of Portugal.
