Elvas Private Tour

At the selected time, we'll meet at Praça da República and start a walking tour to visit the main monuments and landmarks in Elvas. Are you ready? Let's go!

On this tour, we'll admire the facades and exteriors of iconic buildings such as the church of the Dominican Sisters, the synagogue, the cathedral, the castle of Elvas, or the aqueduct of Amoreira. What's more, since this is a private tour, you'll be able to modify the itinerary if you wish. We can stop at the places that draw your attention and tell you about their history.

Of course, exploring the impressive walls surrounding this Portuguese city is a must. Did you know they were declared a World Heritage Site? The construction of these defensive barriers began in the 17th century, after the independence of Portugal.

The private tour will also take us to the Ameixas factory museum in Elvas, where one of the most famous food products in this town is made: candied plums. We'll discover how these sweets are made. Here a hint: a 500-year-old recipe. And we'll also get to have a tasting as the tour's finishing touch.

After three and a half hours, we'll head back to the initial meeting point, ending this guided tour.
