Episode 003 — Evora Cathedral

The great adventure continues. Leah and Simon bike past 12,000 olive trees to get to the remote walled city of Evora, in eastern Portugal.

The beautiful Cathedral of Évora hosts Portugal’s oldest working pipe organ. It is well protected, and we were reduced to attending a confirmation service to get anywhere near it.

The church of São Vicente de Fora has the largest baroque organ in Lisbon, and she is a beaut.
