    A pleasant day in Marvoa

    July 18 - Marvoa



    This serene medieval village is dramatically set at 862
    meters (2,828 feet) on the top of mountain facing Spain. Its 13th century walls
    and 17th century buttresses make it an impregnable stronghold. The first known
    inhabitants of the area were Roman, followed by the Moors whom King Dom Afonso
    Henriques evicted with difficulty in 1166. The castle became an essential
    stronghold for border control. ...

    Driving from Coimbra to Marvoa

    ... This included attempted routes marked do not enter and
    roads which seemed more appropriate for pedestrian traffic. As we passed a few
    locals sitting on their front door thresholds drinking beer, the road was so
    narrow they had to pick up their feet. When Ms Garmin tried to guide us up a “donkey
    path” we relied on locals who pointed the other way to drive to the Pousada. We

Then, Dave goes on and I wait in the ...

    Yesterday (Thursday) whilst the weather outlook still looked favourable, we decided to 'do' the town of Castel de Vide, about five miles away. On the recommendation of Chris at the site, we headed first for the viewpoint overlooking the town itself to take in the small Chapel of Our Lady of Penha, which after parking up is accessed by a winding flight of cobbled steps - we thought it was reminiscent of the scene from the film 'Mamma Mia'! Once ...

    Beira by bike

    Shortly after waving off neighbours Nick and Caroline yesterday (Wednesday) morning we set off on our bikes (ashamed to say it is the first time I have used mine for about a month) turning left outside the gates, along quiet lanes. The landscape was very reminiscent of parts of the UK with its boulders, dry stone walls and oak trees, but the cork trees were somewhat alien to us. Fascinating fact about cork: did you know ...
