The castle

Get in[edit]

The bus departs from Lisbon at 07:30, arriving at Marvão at 11:50. On the return trip the bus departs from Marvão at 15:50, arriving in Lisbon at 20:15.

There are also local buses between Marvao and Portalegre among other villages and towns but they are infrequent

There are no trains between Lisbon and Marvão.

Get around[edit]


The castle is like a child's dream - whatever the child's age! There are turrets, a dungeon, an armoury and an inner castle - all free except for a small museum. The museum is nothing wonderful but it seems almost churlish not to pay the €1 admission.

The village is completely walled and there is a short ridge across the top from the castle to beyond the church.
