Elvas was a great find for a quick overnight – it has a wonderful aqueduct and probably one of the best forts we have ever visited. The overnight was at a supermarket – really helpful that we get sewage, fresh and grey disposal for zilch!
We wandered around the town end then drove over to the fort which was a couple of km outside the town. A marvelous day exploring the fort and a great way to finish off our trip to Portugal. We read about the many conflicts between Spain and Portugal from the Portuguese perspective before heading 10km and into spain and Badajoz for the Spanish perspective!
