| Automatic Translation | The building commonly known as Palácio de D. Manuel is the only construction that currently survives from the former complex of the Royal Palace of S. Francisco, having undergone some remodeling and conservation interventions over the last 150 years, the last of which was in the middle of the year. of the century XX. The adaptation of D. Manuel's Palace to the Interpretative Center of the City of Évora is a vital part of the general objective advocated by the project “Center for Touristic Reception of Alentejo Central”, allowing a first reception of visitors who arrive in this city. But that's not all: it will certainly be an important educational resource for the entire school community.
