Marvão Things to Do: 42 reviews and 67 photos

  Built into the Granite Mountain
by Bwana_Brown

Making full use of its dominating position, the walls of the castle use the natural rock formations to impede the progress of any attacker. By the time you have climbed that high over the rock face, you still would have to face the defenders on the walls and in their protective towers.

There is a beautiful view out over the countryside and toward the Spanish border from high up here!

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
