Lisbon to Algarve via Evora?

Hello all-

We are planning on driving from Lisbon to the Algarve (specifically Lagos) and I've heard so many great things about Evora and did not want to miss it. If we leave Lisbon early, would it be possible to hit Evora (2 hour driving time?) then continue south to the Algarve into Lagos. Good idea or will it just make for one loooongggg day??

If a single day it's all you have to spare with Évora, it is still very worth it, it is a city that's a UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the best preserved and truly beautiful. But the city itself and the surrounding area deserve much more, since the Alentejo region is one of the more "intact" zones of Portugal and even Europe. From history (pre-history, romans, arabs, visigoths, medieval, renaissance...) to the winneries (some of the biggest in Portugal), to the beautiful Monsaraz, the Évora region as it all. Definitely worth at least staying for the next day, there are several good hotels in Évora and around.

I agree with every word of AnArt27, so let me suggest you to visit also Monsaraz. But, so, you have to stay at Évora one night.
