    Do you need a toilet inside the Castle?

    by ncfg Updated Nov 23, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After walking and walking by that horrible hot, you certainly needs a toilet, but where? We are inside a medieval castle!
    Yes inside the Castle you can find a toilet, and beautiful gardens with trees where you can rest awhile at their shadows.

    Streets inside the fortress

    by ncfg Updated Nov 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walking trough the narrow streets inside the fortress filled with neat white houses, you have a special feeling about the quiet people’s life that live in such beautiful place.
    When I was there it was very hot, but the shadows of those houses, a bottle of fresh water and such beauty was a good incentive to continue the visit.

    The Marvão Castle and the walls

    by ncfg Updated Nov 23, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This tranquil town is completely surrounded by walls dating from the 13th to the 17th century. You walk trough the streets and when you finally reach the castle, well, you can see all from there, all the houses and an amazing landscape.
    Be prepared to walk, the castle is very big but it worth the effort.

    Whatching Marvão from the village of Portagem below is beautiful. You can see the castle walls running along the hill, and at night all the castle is shinning with light.

    church in Portagem

    This small and beautiful church is very close to the roman bridge. It's not open everyday, but if you get a chance to see it, don't miss it.

    During the summer, and taking in consideration that the Alentejo can be very hot, the river pool at Portagem (free entrance) is a good choice to rest in the shade and go for a refreshing dive.

    Espírito Santo Church II

    by ncfg Updated Nov 23, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When I passed by the Espirito Santo Church, I didn’t enter because it was a dead inside, so I didn’t want to bother the family and I didn’t came in.
    I could see that church is beautiful.
