  • I walked atop the walkway on the battlements of the walls. Incredible defensive fortification.
  • The walls of Elvas had the start of your construction in the reign of dom Sancho II, having been made between the 17TH and 19th centuries. Have an area of 300 hectares and a perimeter that goes from eight to ten kilometres, representing the largest system of fortifications in the world. Within the walls, the city includes large barracks and other military buildings, as well as churches and monasteries. While Elvas retains traces dating back to the 10th century, its fortifications dating from the time of the restoration of independence of Portugal in 1640. The fortifications were designed by the Dutch Jesuit priest John Cosmander and Piscásio represent the best example of military fortifications of the Dutch school who survived to the present day. In the complex, is included the Aqueduct of Amoreira, which had the aim of allowing, the fortification, resist prolonged sieges, conveying water to the inner city.
