Elvas Town Council has awarded the construction of two monuments to commemorate the town’s World Heritage Site status awarded by UNESCO. The monuments will be placed at the Avenida de Badajoz and Avenida Dia de Portugal roundabouts.

Each monument is made up of a skirting and a vertical wall of reinforced concrete and steel. The wall will be dressed with local masonry and the base with 3 cm plates of bush-hammered granite. A metal structure with the "World Heritage" logo will be placed in the middle.

The contract, worth approximately €76,000, includes, in addition to the erection of the monuments in the centre of the two roundabouts, the corresponding landscaping.
