Giraldo Square in Évora | Portugal

Unesco world heritage portugal
Praça do Giraldo is the main square of Évora and it is hard to believe that this calm and pleasant setting was the scene for some of the region’s most violent historical events. The square was the focal point for the murderous 16th century Spanish Inquisitions and more significantly the location of the execution of the Duke of Braganza in 1484.

Today the charming Praça do Giraldo is a popular place for tourists to sit at the open air cafes and restaurants and embrace the relaxing ambience. (source:
