MARVAO TOURISM GUIDE

A spectacular sight from a spectacular site


FIND MARVAO HOTELS »


Marvao, Portugal The splendid site and 360-degree panorama alone would be reason enough to visit the medieval mountaintop village of Marvão, but the town itself (a candidate for the World Heritage list), is one of Portugal's most spectacular fortified villages.

View of 
Marvao The greatest attraction is the unspoiled medieval atmosphere in its steep and narrow lanes with immaculately whitewashed houses, leading to a magnificent 13th century castle rising from the rock. It contains a huge water cistern and nearby is a 13th century church with a small but interesting museum of archeological finds and local artifacts.

Most rewarding of all is climbing onto the walls, battlements and towers for the impressive views, and staying for the stunning sunset and evening peace of the village.

Typical 
Marvao street To stay overnight, there is a charming pousada built among tightly clustered houses, also with magnificent views.

Nearby are the mountains of São Mamede, a natural park with Neolithic and Roman remains, wildlife, and Europe's largest colony of bats.

Marvão can be reached from Castelo de Vide by infrequent bus service or taxi.
