The Pousada de Marvão, located in the village of Marvão, Alto Alentejo , has neighboring Spain at its side, and just 21 km away, the district capital, Portalegre.

The village is at an altitude of 860 m, which offers fantastic views of both the Portuguese and Spanish plains.

We suggest that you start your visit inside the walls, where there is a beautiful set of popular Alentejo architecture. In the narrow streets of Marvão, you can easily discover Gothic arches, Manueline windows and wrought iron balconies, embellishing the houses and other details of interest in corners marked by local granite.
