Collection of Islamic remains
Muslims visiting the Museu de Évora will not be able to find a prayer room at the attraction. The city of Évora is however home to one known mosque; the Islamic Place of Worship of Évora. Muslim tourists can therefore ask museum staff to guide them to this facility when needed.
The Museu de Évora is not known to house a café. Visitors to the museum will therefore have to dine at one of the restaurants in the area surrounding the attraction. Since there are no known Halal restaurants in the city, Muslim tourists will have to dine on suitable seafood or vegetarian dishes at a local non-Halal restaurant. More information regarding the availability of Halal food could be obtained at the local mosque.
