Museu de Évora
Museum in Évora
This graceful museum is located next to the cathedral, occupying the former archbishop’s palace, which was constructed during the 16th century. The cloistered courtyard showcases remnants from various historical periods, including Islamic, Roman, and medieval artifacts. Upstairs, the museum features refined rooms displaying former Episcopal furnishings and a collection of Flemish paintings. Particularly noteworthy is the “Life of the Virgin,” a set of 13 panels that were originally part of the cathedral’s altarpiece. These panels were created by anonymous Flemish artists who were working in Portugal around the year 1500.
