The History of the Pousada de Marvão
It was the initiative of a prominent figure of the time, Jeremias da Conceição Dias that endowed Marvão with its first hotel.
Heir to a home that he joined to the neighbouring house, the one of the sexton, which he then acquired, built up and placed an inn with five rooms, which he suggestively called "Ninho D'Águias" (Eagles’ Nest).
About ten years later, it was integrated into the network of Pousadas by the S.N.I., expanding it to an eight bedroom establishment and taking advantage of the large balcony to turn it into a glass restaurant, from which you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view.
It went from eight bedrooms to thirteen in 1987, taking use of a little garden attached to the restaurant and in 1992; after shutting down for fifteen months for remodelling it reopened with 28 double rooms and 1 suite.
During this reconstruction, a former foundry in ruins, located in front of the original Pousada building, was recuperated. The location of the restaurant was kept, slightly expanded, and the old bedrooms were transformed into the current living area/bar with a fireplace ideal for cold winter nights. A nearby piece of land was used as a panoramic terrace.
