Europe, Portugal

Evoramonte (formerly also spelled "Évora Monte" or "Évoramonte") is a civil parish in the municipality of Estremoz in the Alentejo region of Portugal. It is the site of a castle founded in 1160 which was the site of the signing on 26 May 1834 of the peace treaty/armistice known as the "Concession [or Convention] of Évora Monte", which ended the civil war between Dom Pedro IV and Dom Miguel; as a result Dom Miguel went into exile. The municipality of Évora Monte was extinguished in the reforms of 1855, and its territory partitioned among the neighbouring municipalities of Estremoz, Évora, Arraiolos, and Redondo.
