Elvas is a city in Portugal, in the Alentejo region.
Elvas is easily reached by bus, often from Evora.
Elvas is very close to Badajoz,Spain and has been fortified at different times. That makes it worth while to wander round looking at the work of different periods.
The old aqueduct is a great architectural view - five stories in parts - and it's staggering to see how narrow was its channel.
