I think they will, the couple featured with various extensive articles in PdV already, among them a trip to Cambodja. And even before they were engaged the couple got extensive coverage and seemed to be doing an interview with the magazine every month.

In what cathedral in Evora do they marry? I was there in January but the place is crowded with them. One of them has the bones and skulls of 5000 people on the walls (the inscription on the door says: 'We bones that are here, await yours')

I always thought they were going to marry at the palatine chapel of St John The Evangelist...but now I hear it's at the epispocal seat of Evora..but my god! Skulls and bones on the walls?? That sounds like a horribly creepy scene for a wedding!

Evora has only one cathedral. The others are considered only churches. The cathedral is the "Sé", near the Roman temple.
Where are bones on the wall is in the chapel of bones, next to church of San Francisco. Evora is a place with many churches, but only a cathedral.

Thank you Ana! They all looked rather big to me and as a dutch reformed I am not very aware of the difference between a church and a cathedral since we call everything a church, even the (former) cathedrals. Anyway, I found a link with pictures to the Cathedral of Sé, which can be seen here.

The Cathedral is the church which is presided by a bishop/archbishop (in case of Évora).
Others are mere churches.

A Cathedral is the principal church of a diocese, and what makes a church a Cathedral is the presence of the bishop. In Portugal, a cathedral is often an impressive and large building,and it represents the power and duties of the bishop. The Cathedrals are often witnesses of several Important events, as Coronations and Royal Weddings.

Bones Chapel

And some links to the nearby Bones Chapel at S.Francisco Church.

Capela dos Ossos (Bone Chapel), Evora, Portugal

Évora is one of my favourite towns in Portugal.
It was distinguished by Unesco a couple of decades ago.

And some of the country's best restaurants are to be found there.
