Welcome to Backcountry Tours
“Nowhere any city, but Évora, was capable to tell me with purity and beauty that I am latin, that I am arab, that I am christian, that I am peninsular, that I am portuguese,- that I am the tragic blend of mystic and pagan blood that made me the miserable man we know.” (TORGA, Miguel. 1942)
“Get in Alentejo unsecured. The raw and dense land, the immobile and acre air, the slip and parched slopes dodge and offer themselves in instinctive reflections. Diving in the horizon, in very slow sunsets, the sun releases the occult.” (DACOSTA, Fernando. 2009)
Art & Culture
“It is more difficult the passage from civilization to culture then the formation of a civilization. Civilization is a collective phenomenon. Culture is an individual phenomenon. There is no culture without civilization, nor civilization that lasts without culture.” (SOBRAL DE ALMADA NEGREIROS, José. In “Ensaios”)
Come to Évora
For us, traveling is something that shapes people; visiting other places and knowing other people is our greatest wealth. Because of this, we like to show Évora, our city, just as it is, without filters and with all the hidden places. Living in Évora also contributes to our country’s history and we take pride in that.
