The Portuguese Golden Visa
The Golden Visa Program, launched by the Portuguese Government, is a fast track for foreign investors from non-EU countries to obtain a fully valid residence permit in Portugal (“Golden Visa”). Under this program, non-EU citizens simply need to make one of the qualifying investments to obtain a residence permit in Portugal.
This residence permit will allow the investor and his family members to enter and/or live in Portugal and to travel freely within the vast majority of European countries (Schengen Area).
Évora is the capital of Portugal’s south-central Alentejo region. In the city’s historic center stands the ancient Roman Temple of Évora (also called the Temple of Diana).
Nearby, whitewashed houses surround the Cathedral of Évora, a massive Gothic structure, which began in the 12th century. The Church of São Francisco features Gothic and baroque architecture along with the skeleton-adorned Chapel of Bones.
Stretching beyond the city’s medieval walls, the arched Aqueduto da Água de Prata (Aqueduct of Silver Water) dates from the 16th century. Praça do Giraldo is the centuries-old main square, centered around the Henriquina Fountain.
In a former palace near the cathedral, the Museum of Évora displays art and artifacts spanning the city’s history.
Notable churches include the Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Graça, with classical statues set on its Renaissance facade, and the Igreja de São João, where the nave is covered in blue tilework completed in 1711.
