It had been a while. Twenty years, maybe more? I have a vague recollection of Évora Monte (or Évoramonte, both are correct). It is the village you cannot miss — set on a very high hill, seen from miles away, and unmistakable. Its odd castle, looking much like a wedding cake — soaring high above the cork forests of the Alentejo. It is a rare walled town, with a rare palace/castle.
