Southern Portugal

Evora is not just the chapel of bones but also Roman Ruins, a delightfuly typical inland town and university town.

I would suggest that Lagos is a better option than Faro. Although Faro has a small lovely old centre it is the administrative capital of the Algarve and its beaches are a ways away.

Lagos is historic, its beaches are accessible and in my opinion more fun.

There are twice - daily buses operated by Damas/Eva between Lagos and Seville on weekdays between October and the end of May. In summer the buses are daily.

You can find the timetable here on Cubsur's excellent site:

Have a great trip.
