What do I need to know about living in Evora?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Evora, they said:

"Expats considering retirement in Evora should be aware of several key factors. Firstly, the cost of living in Evora is relatively low compared to other European cities, making it an attractive option for retirees. However, it's important to understand that while some goods and services may be cheaper, others such as imported goods may be more expensive. The official language in Evora is Portuguese, so learning the basics of the language would be beneficial, although English is widely spoken in tourist areas and by younger generations. The city is known for its warm, Mediterranean climate, with hot summers and mild winters, which could be a significant change for those from cooler climates. Healthcare in Portugal is of a high standard, with both public and private options available. Expats should research the best health insurance options for their needs and ensure they are covered. Evora is a city rich in history and culture, with many historical sites and museums to explore. It's also known for its food and wine, so food lovers will be in their element. Public transportation in Evora is reliable and affordable, but having a car can be beneficial for exploring the surrounding countryside. Portugal has a relatively low crime rate, but like any city, it's important to be aware of your surroundings and take basic safety precautions. Finally, Portugal has a favorable tax regime for non-habitual residents, which can be beneficial for retirees. However, it's recommended to seek advice from a tax professional to understand the implications fully," said one expat in Evora.
