We stopped in Marvão after Tomar, and we couldn’t believe the views of the mountains from the top of the hills (@2,800 feet). Marvão is a medieval fortress town at the top of a cliff. The sun was setting and we caught this beautiful town at sunset. Randy is not a fan of heights, so climbing the fortress walls with no railings was a bit scary. But he did great and our reward was amazing at the top of the hills. What a great way to spend our first day in Portugal.
Thanks to Fodor’s Travel Guides, Trip Advisor, and Wikipedia for the great lessons that helped me to plan and summarize this trip.
