Casa da Cultura de Elvas (Elvas Cultural Centre) is located in Praça da República square, in a building dating back to 1538 and erected in the heart of the city by architect Francisco de Arruda.

This building was built besides the second Islamic wall and modified halfway through the 18th century.


It is also worth noting the beautiful 16th century gallery overlooking Praça da República square and a manueline window that opens to Rua da Cadeia street. The main door shows the emblem of the city with a Knight and the Standard, from the last third of 18th century.
