After careful evaluation, the scientific committee of the Swiss Tourism Awards then selected the city of Evora and awarded the prize:
Evora is the ideal place to visit if you are looking for a trip full of historical sites. Much of the suburban wall around the city is still intact, with most of their historical monuments and the city center dating back nearly two millennia. Going to Evora will be like taking a trip back in time. Since it has become so popular, transportation and activities for tourists have increased by leaps and bounds. This city with its architecture and winding streets is a magical place to get a taste of times past.
