From Lisbon we headed inland to Évora, famous for its Roman Temple and in the heart of the Alentejo wine region. The mediæval town is delightful with the Temple being the centrepiece, but there is also a vast aqueduct and some great churches. Of course being close to Christmas, all the nativity scenes are being dusted off and displayed around town. Some of those Baby Jesuses have seen better days. The countryside is also renowned for megalithic sites of standing stones, around 2000 years old, just sitting in a farmer's field. Gosh!!
