Evora Inn is a guest house. It’s located next to the main square in the center of Évora – classified World Heritage city by UNESCO. It was in this exact place, an historical five-story building restored in 2010, where the Portuguese Republic was proclaimed in 1910.
The comfortable accommodations are surrounded by Heritage, Design and Art. The space is decorated with well-known design brands such as Kartell design, Calligaris, Muno, Rotodesign, Poliform, Magis, Edições Dimensão. These brands perfectly combine with the original old tapestries dated from long ago, bringing past and present together.
In this building several works of art have been present, by authors such as Júlio Pomar, Maluda, Carlos Castanheira or Paula Rego.
António Ribeiro Chiado (1520) was born in Évora. He was a Franciscan monk until he abandoned the monastic life and, in Lisbon, became a famous “bon vivant”, known for his joyous character and as a polemicist. As a playwright he’s the author of Prática de Oito Figuras (1542), Auto das Regateiras (1550), Prática de Compadres (1572), Auto da Natural Invenção and Auto de Gonçalo Chambão.
He died in 1591 and his name would be henceforth associated with one of the most emblematic places at the centre of Lisbon. The main room on our Inn is named after him.
