Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

When driving up to the town, it’s obvious that it’s an incredible place, but it’s not even close to the sheer beauty that it holds inside the town. For only a few euros, you can gain access to the entire castle, which is huge and has some incredible walls that you can walk along, also turrets, old cannons, an underground cistern, and two huge towers. Definitely worth a visit!

Located at the top of the hill you can’t miss this castle. It’s an absolute gem. Before you enter there is a sense of wonder and real history. You can understand the strategic importance of the castle with Spain visible in the distance.
Prior to the entrance there is a gorgeous little garden area, very well kept with beautiful butterflies hopping from one lavender stem to another. From here ascend the stone path up to the entrance. It is not suitable for wheelchair users and parents with buggies will struggle. Just inside the entrance is the ticket office. At time of writing it cost 1euro 50cent per adult.
There is a free information leaflet (different languages), and off you go. It just goes on and on. You can walk up on the ramparts and stand in the guard posts. Health & Safety is not high on the agenda and there are no guard rails so watch your step. It is however fabulous and the views are stunning. A leisurely walk around takes about an hour or so. There are toilets onsite and a small shop. Overall an excellent experience.

This was our first stop from crossing into Portugal from Spain - and great opening
for our trip indeed.
The castle look very small from afar - but once you park the car outside the city
walls and start climbing it become more amazing in every step up.
We climbed to the castle via the walls - not via the streets ( those we used to walk
down ). It nice steep climbing and with some beautiful pictures to take.
The map at the entrance is very detailed and informative.

You can not see a lot of Marvao castle and hilltop village from a distance, it looks quite small and somewhat insignificant on top of a very high mountain. But make the drive up and use the parking just outside the main gate rather than drive up through the narrow streets which could be a little challenging and a struggle to park. From the gate in the town wall it is a very enjoyable stroll through steep picture perfect streets to the top. And at the top you will be treated to absolutely wonderful views for miles and miles in any direction. The whole hilltop is still a complete fortified village being surrounded by the defensive walls. The actual castle is quite a large structure with further defensive walls behind another entrance gate with other buildings currently used as a tourist shop, art gallery and toilets. The large central keep can be entered and you can walk up several floors. With village churches, one now used as the museum, cafes etc and of course the stunning views, it is a fantastic place to visit.

The young man at the reception desk was very inhospitable, but apart from that the visit to the castle was very enjoyable. There is plenty to explore and there are ramparts to walk along, However, there is no guard rail so not really suitable for children. At the far end of the castle is a craft shop with handmade items for sale. An enjoyable place to visit.

Beautiful castle, especially thanks to its location. Try to go around sunset, when it's a bit less crowded. You will have the most amazing view from the castle (and won't have to pay the entrance fee anymore ;) ).

after you climb all the way to the Castle, and enjoy the amazing views from top of this mount located on the border with Spain, you can understand the strategic reasons and how difficult it must have been to attack it.
A difficult walk upwards but on the other hand the views and walking the ramparts are worthwhile paying the entrance fee.
