Located south of Elvas and crossing the Guadiana river, the Ajuda fortified bridge is a masterpiece of military architecture. It ensured the connections between the strongholds of Elvas and Olivença (the latter currently being integrated into Spanish territory). Two fortified towers in the middle of the board with its armored doors ensured its military function. It is in ruins after having been made to explode during one of the many border wars between Portugal and Spain in the early eighteenth century.
