Why Visit Evora, Lisbon and Porto?
Lisbon has been Sandra’s adoptive hometown for the last 20 years, so she adores to show her off. She had been curious about Porto for years but never been until getting invited to the Fantasporto Film Festival there. She went in early March and, despite what everyone told us, the weather was amazing! Évora is an underrated UNESCO World Heritage City it’s a must-see and close to Lisbon by car or by train.
