  • Como es mi costumbre con las producciones de Michaela Sanda,
    pienso que las específicas a Évora han concluído.No haré un
    comentario de cada una de las partes,sino en la captación que
    de ellas hace esta gran artista,que fotografía y explica a la perfección.Como escribió el que para mí es uno de los autores
    de diaporamas más importantes de la actualidad,las fotos son
    formas de transmitir lo que se lleva dentro.Y Michaela Sanda capta
    la esencia de todo lo que nos muestra,y por eso sus trabajos son
    una muestra ininterrumpida de espiritualidad,de belleza externa e
    interna,de temas que no deja de abordar,de excelente música.En
    mi caso personal siento un deleite especial apreciar expresiones
    así,y por ello el arte del alma ilumina con luz inextinguible el todo
    que adquiere un valor que no tiene precio.Es mi sentir.

  • 1. PORTA DE D. ISABELD. Isabel Gate, but this name was only given to it 400 years ago, because before that it was called “The gate of the Moorish Butcher”. This is the oldest gate. It was built by the Romans about 1800 years ago. It was one of the main entrances to the city and was part of the walls the Romans built to protect Évora: called Cerca Velha, the Old Fence. There were four gates in that wall, of which this is the only one left. The Roman wall, which was built in the 3rd century, was big for the time. It was about 1200 metres long and had lots of towers to defend it. Sometimes, the wall could not stand up to the strongest attacks. In the middle of the 7th Century, Arab soldiers knocked through the wall and invaded the city. But Évora recovered. Look at the remains of cobbles right after the entrance. It was a Roman road. How many people must have trodden on this cobbles and passed through this gate?    .

    1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-1968977-evora6/
    2. 2. Evora's walls trace the heritage and architecture of the city. There are three belts of walls: the oldest Cerca Velha dates back to the Roman period with Arab reconstruction; Cerca Nova was built in the middle of the 14th century; the most modern fortification is from the 17th century.
    3. 3. This museum-city, whose roots go back to Roman times, reached its golden age in the 15th century, when it became the residence of the Portuguese kings. Its unique quality stems from the whitewashed houses decorated with azulejos and wrought-iron balconies dating from the 16th to the 18th century. Its monuments had a profound influence on Portuguese architecture in Brazil. Câmara Municipal de Évora (City Hall)
    4. 4. Évora has been shaped by some 20 centuries of history, going as far back as Celtic times. It fell under Roman domination, when it was called Liberalitas Julia Câmara Municipal de Évora (City Hall)

    15. 15. Igreja do Convento da Graca was built in the 16th century by King D. Joao III in accordance with architectural designs by Miguel de Arruda. and believed to be one of the first works of Renaissance design in the country. The facade of the Augustinian convent features "Lads of Grace", statues of giants symbolizing the four spheres of the world and the universal power of King Joao III (giants which the locals call, with a certain degree of irony, " the children of grace") Also of note is the cloister by Miguel de Arruda where Publia Hortencia de Castro, poetess of the 16th century, is buried
    16. 16. Meninos da Graça
    17. 17. Was in the 15th century, however, when the Portuguese kings began living there on an increasingly regular basis, that Évora 's golden age began. The 16th century was a time of major urban planning as demonstrated by the ancient style: Agua da Prata aqueduct built in 1537 by Francisco de Arruda and the many fountains that remain (la Praça do Geraldo is the best known). It also marked the beginning of Évora's intellectual and religious influence. The University of the Holy Spirit, where the Jesuits taught from 1553, played a role in the south which was comparable to that of Coimbra in the north of the kingdom.
    18. 18. After a depressing spell under the Visigoths, the town got its groove back as a centre of trade under the Moors. In AD 1165 Évora’s Muslim rulers were hoodwinked by a rogue Portuguese Christian knight known as Giraldo Sem Pavor (Gerald the Fearless). The well-embellished story goes like this: Giraldo single-handedly stormed one of the town’s watchtowers by climbing up a ladder of spears driven into the walls. From there he distracted municipal sentries while his companions took the town with hardly a fight. The Moors took it back in 1192, clinging on for another 20 years or so To this day, the city bears in the emblem the heroic figure of Gerald and two severed heads of the Moors, in addition to dedicating the most emblematic square of Evora, Gerald’s Square (Praça do Geraldo, in Portuguese). stonework in the Se cathedral

    20. 20. Giraldo Square (Praça do Geraldo): Centre of the city; in this square King Duarte built the Estaus Palace which even today maintains its Gothic look. The Renaissance fountain (fonte Henriquina) dates from 1570. At the northern end of the quare lies St Anton's church (Igreja de Santo Antão) built by Manuel Pires, also from the 16th century. This is a rather plump church with three aisles. The antependium of the altar displays a valuable 13th century Roman-Gothic bas relief. Praça do Giraldo, Igreja de Santo Antão
    21. 21. In 1483 Fernando II, Duke of Braganza was decapitated on this square, in the presence of his brother-in-law king John II.
    22. 22. Giraldo Square (Praça do Geraldo): This square also witnessed thousands of autos-da-fé during the period of the Inquisition; 22.000 condemnations, it seems, in about 200 years
