We spent just a day in Marvão but it worth the visit.

It is a small village in Alentejo only a few miles from Spain at a top of peak (Serra do Sapoio - 800 e 860 metros) surrounded of a great wall and at the top you find a beautiful castle. What a great view we have from it!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A charming village with a beautiful Castle to explore
  • Cons:Too hot on the summer

    It's good to know medieval castles have toilets. ;) Portugal looks so beatiful, I have to go there one day. I can taste that pork sandwich now.
