Pousada de Marvão - Santa Maria Marvão
The small traditional houses of Marvao, a medieval town with walls dating from the thirteenth century, seem to squeeze the narrow little streets that wind between them. Two of these village houses have been comfortably converted into the Pousada Marvao, Santa Maria, a small charming hotel.  The Pousada Santa Maria boasts many features, which make this a special place to stay. The cosy ambience of the bedrooms and reception rooms is echoed in the simple decoration and almost family atmosphere. The rooms offer two completely different experiences: some (only a few) offer views of the stunning mountain landscape surrounding this hilltop town, whilst the rest face inwards into the lanes and alleyways of the old town, immersing visitors in a medieval world of granite and whitewashed houses.
