  • Excellent fort, I could ferry lost for hours exploring. From outside it seems small but it is enormous. It has great views of Elvas and aqueduct.
  • Really great experience exploring this fort with a guided tour. The English-speaking guide had a very deep knowledge of the fort and the historical context. She was open to many questions and seemed very happy to be able to share. The fort is very well preserved and an eye-opening experience into historical defensive high tech. It is very accessible to just explore on your own but I would definitely recommend paying the small extra for a guided tour.
