One of the 1000 Places to see Before you Die
Marvão is simply one of best places to visit in Portugal. Moreover, Marvão is a mandatory stop.
The village has long inspired artists and writers, from Nobel prize-winner José Saramago to leading travel writers from around the world. In the 1950s, author Huldine Beamish wrote of Marvão ‘There is an atmosphere about the district (of Marvão) that is very ancient. Picking your way along the steep stony pathways, you would not be at all surprised to meet a Phoenician trader or Roman Soldier’. It is, in short, a village that fires the imagination!
