The fortified town of Marvãoin Portugal is also called the eagle's nest. It is spectacularly situated at an altitude of 856 meters on a granite wall, on one of the peaks of the Serra de São de Mamede. It is precisely this nature park that makes this route so special.
The imposing fortress walls of Marvão are made of granite and fit perfectly into the landscape to merge with the rocky ridge. Marvão is full of radiant white houses and is an ideal place to enjoy an extraordinary panorama of the plain and the mountains.
Marvao is located in the middle of the Serra de São Mamede Natural Park, an oasis of greenery with granite hills and special vegetation. This Serra de São Mamede Natural Park is located on the Spanish border and was in the old days with natural barriers a fortress to guard the border with Spain.
