The Aqueduto da Amoreira (Aqueduct of Amoreira) reaches around 8 kilometres, from the outskirts of Elvas city, and carries water to the marble fountain of Largo da Misericórdia (Fonte da Misericórdia fountain).

This amazing aqueduct, classified as World Heritage Site since 1910, took more than 120 years to build and was finished in 1622 following the sketches of Francisco de Arruda, with huge cylindrical buttresses and sequences of arches that reach 30 metre in height at points.

One of the best places to enjoy this view is from the road to Lisbon, to the west of the city centre.
