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.
Today, this charming hotel in Elvas offers its guests not only all possible comfort but also the best Alentejo cuisine, especially the renowned bacalhau dourado (golden codfish), or its famous dish of pork trotters in a coriander marinade.
