Fodor's Expert Review Forte de Santa Luzia

Elvas Military Site

This impressive military fortress on a hill about 1½ km (1 mile) outside Elvas's city walls houses an interesting military museum with an array of artillery and weapons. The fort's rectangular ramparts were first built in the 1640s during Portugal's centuries-long animosity with Spain, and the local governor's residence was at its center.
