The cathedral is at the heart of this quiet city. It is very beautiful, with sculptures and special paintings

There are some very beautiful elements in this church. The painted vaulted ceiling, the stonework, the gilded woodcarvings, the marble main altar and the ravishing pipe organ make it an absolute must see.

It's another church. Not a very big one, not a special one. It has what you would expect of a church. Theres plenty of sitting and kneeling space. There's a lot of statues around the walls. And there's places where you can leave your money.

Elvas maybe small but it has numerous churches. The cathedral is situated in a large plaza and is small when compared to other cathedrals but still worth climbing the steps to see inside.

Having now been in over half a dozen Portuguese churches/cathedrals, as an ordinary lay person without any specific knowledge of church architecture this small cathedral is similar to many others, a large nave, with two side aisles full of very ornate alcoves with catholic symbolism...More

This is a nice Cathedral in the center of Elvas. If you are walking the historic center this is a stop worth making.
