Marvão : Michelin's recommendations
Situated at a height of 865m on one of the summits of the Serra São Mamede, Marvão is a fortified medieval town, a veritable eagle's nest perched atop a high granite outcrop.

Very popular with tourists in summer, it offers exceptional views of mountain and plain.
