Lisbon - Marvão

At arrival in Lisbon you pick upi your rental car and start on your journey to Marvão. You drive along the north bank of the Tagus river towards the Serra de São Mamede Nature Park. It may be a nice idea to plan a stop in Castelo de Vide. This town is one of the many treasures of the Alentejo. Its winding streets, castle, fortifications and fort make it an ideal first starter exploration on your Portuguese adventure. You continue to Reguengo.

If you are a nature buff day 2 may bring you the pure delight of exploring the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park with its picture perfect hills, valleys and numerous animal and plant species. And yet do set some time aside for a closer look of the medieval village of Marvão which is definitely worth your while. Located atop the cliffs of Serra do Sapoio at 860m altitude Marvão enjoys an outstanding setting.
