Marvão CastLe wonDers


Oye.... mas fotitas tomadas por mi en 2000.
El muy lindo castillo de la ciudad de Marvão. 
En Portugal.

More OLD shoots i took in 2000 with my old analogic camera.
At Marvão city castle, Portugal.

                                                   Oh..what a lovelly castle!!
                                                                  :)

Marvão (Portuguese pronunciation: [mɐɾˈvɐ̃w]) is a municipality in Portugal with a total area of 154.9 km² and a total population of 3,739 inhabitants. The municipality is composed of 4 parishes, and is located in Portalegre District. The present Mayor is Vitor Martins Frutuoso, elected by the Social Democratic Party. The municipal holiday is September 8.

Perched on a granite crag, Marvão's name is derived from an 8th century Muslim chieftain, named Ibn Marwan. Ibn Marwan used the fortress as a power base when establishing an independent statelet - covering much of modern-day Portugal - during the Cordoban emirate (884-931 CE). The castle and walled village were further fortified through the centuries, notably under Sancho II of Portugal (13th century) and Denis of Portugal.

The village has generated significant tourist interest in recent years. It was included in the #1 New York Times bestselling book, '1000 Places to see Before you Die'.[1] Nobel prize-winning author José Saramago wrote of the village ‘‘From Marvão one can see the entire land... It is understandable that from this place, high up in the keep at Marvão Castle, visitors may respectfully murmur, ‘How great is the world.’’[2]


Marvão´s castle: an archetype of medieval castle-building

As with other 11th-13th century castles, the early medieval improvements and development of Marvão castle reflect the innovations brought back by crusading orders from the near east (notably the highly influential Hospitaller castle in Syria, the Krak des Chevaliers). The medieval castle seen in Marvão today mostly post-dates the year 1299, and features numerous characteristic features of a crusader-era castle: a tall central keep with raised entrance on the first floor; a series of lower, outlying turrets (some semi-circular); high-placed arrow-slits; open spaces to aid the sheltering and assembly of villagers and troops; a well, and huge rain-collecting cistern to supply water to both keep and the wider castle in the event of siegebent entrances (both on the village and castle gates) to slow down invaders in the event of breached gates; a series of narrow killing zones (notably, in the triple gate on the village-side of the castle); extensive crenellated battlements and curtain walls that enhanced the natural defences provided by the escarpments of Marvão's rock.[23]


INFO:


History
Commanding spectacular views across the Tagus basin and Serra de Estrela to the north, the fortified rock of Marvão has been a site of significant strategic importance since the earliest human settlements. Today lying on the 'raia' that divides Portugal and Spain, Marvão has consistently stood on a frontier zone between peoples: Celtici, Vettones and Lusitani (4th-2nd century BCE); Lusitanians and the Romans of Hispania Ulterior (2nd-1st century BCE); migratory Suevi, Alans, Vandals and Visigoths (5th-7th century CE); conquering moors and Visigoths (8th century); muwallad rebels and the Cordoban emirate (9th-10th century); Portuguese nation-builders and Moors (12th-13th century); Templars and Hospitallers (12th-14th century); Portuguese and Castilians (12th century-present day); Liberals and Absolutists (19th century); the fascist regimes of Salazar and Franco (20th century).
Marvão's natural assets have contributed to the 'uniqueness' of this remote village as perceived by visitors today: (i) as nigh-impregnable 'eagle's nest' fortress - perched high on a granite crag, and bordered on the south and west by the Sever river; (ii) as vital lookout-point towards the Alcántara Bridge (70 km away), a wide stretch of the Tagus basin and the Serra de Estrela; (iii) as a gateway to Portugal from Spain via the Porta da Espada ('Sword Gate') mountain pass of the Serra de São Mamede. These assets have ensured its status as the 'Mui Nobre e Sempre Leal Vila de Marvão' (Very Noble and Ever-Loyal Town) into the present day.

MeDievaL Castelo de vide ciTy



And....more of my some old shoots  taken in 2000 with my old analogic camera.... 

At Castelo de Vide city, Portugal.
:-)






The small town of Castelo de Vide, 7 kilometres from Quinta do Pomarinho, is described by the ANWB-guide as the best preserved medieval town of Portugal. The picturesque town of Castelo de Vide is located in the Alto Alentejo Portugal region and lies on the slope of one of the northern foothills of the Serra de São Mamede. In the past it was an important stronghold on the Spanish border, now it is a lethargic town with a wonderful charm and where time seems to stand still.
