Elvas is a strongly fortified walled town just opposite Spanish Badajoz with a long history of battles. Black pork and red wine are just two of the culinary delights on offer. Film set villages nearby include Terena, Monsarraz, Vila Vicosa, Marvao and Borba. Elvas is a small town with steep cobbled streets. Outlying forts are interesting to explore. Olivenca (Spanish) just 16kms away has a magnificent Manueline Church, al lovely square that is very lively in the evenings as families come out to meet and greet. Elvas has evening summer entertainments in the main square. There is considerable Peninsular war history as Elvas/Badajoz were the key for Wellington to secure from the French.
