Portugal. €5 2004. UNESCO World Heritage - Historic Center of Evora. Proof

UNESCO World Heritage Site: Historical Center of Evora
The obverse shows the  boundary lines of Evora's historic center district. The reverse shows the Largo das Portas de Moura with its Renaissance fountain, and the belvedere of Casa Cordovil.
This museum-city, whose roots go back to Roman times, reached its golden age in the 15th century, when it became the residence of the Portuguese kings. Its unique quality stems from the whitewashed houses decorated with azulejos and wrought-iron balconies dating from the 16th to the 18th century. Its monuments had a profound influence on Portuguese architecture in Brazil.(source: UNESCOO
