Visiting Elvas.
Sep. 2020
After you have visited the “Palace” of Elvas, and you want also to visit visit the “Castle of Elvas”, then the best thing to do is to leave the car in front of the “Palace” of Elvas, and from there it is only about a 5 minutes walk to reach the castle. It is a medieval military fortification. Between the 8th and 12th century Moslim forces occupied Elvas, resulting in the construction of the fortress. It was briefly conquered by forces loyal to Afonso Henriques around 1166, an action that was repeated in successive years with Moorish capture, and recapture, of the strategic point. The cast is more or less turned into a museum, with some nice things to see, i tis realy worth the visit

We saw this site in the guidebooks and on maps of the Fortifications of Elvas ...but not much information.

It was closed on the day we arrived and their were no brochures in a kiosk outside. We walked around took some photos from the street and adjacent plaza and miradouro.

Good views of Forte de Graca and looking towards Spain.
