Photographer's Note

Worth visiting are the 15th century Mother Church and the Municipal Museum, open in the former church of Santa Maria and displaying local ethnological and cultural traditions and archaeological findings. Rua do Espírito Santo, with the former governor´s house exhibiting beautiful iron-wrought balconies from the 17th century, leads to the Castle, mostly built by King Dinis in 1299 and dominating the village. Marvão lies in the area of the Natural Park of Serra de São Mamede, with a wide range of flora and fauna due to its geological diversity and varying climate. Historic vestiges go back to prehistoric times, having been found various megaliths and an important roman site. Near Marvão, visitors can play golf at Vale da Aramenha or swim and practice water sports at the dam in Barragem da Apartadura.
