Interesting history
Sep 2019
This is an area of Jewish settlement that occurred when Jews were kicked out of Spain in the 17-18 centuries. Narrow streets, wonderful old houses, a Jewish museum are part of the attractions. The best site is the ritual fountain at the foot of Rua Nova. It is a well preserved ritual bathing place that still flows water from an underground source.

Very well preserved
May 2019 • Couples
After spending the morning in Marvao, we drove "down" to this charming town and enjoyed walking around various areas but especially enjoyed the Jewish Quarter which is very well preserved. This is a living neighborhood of working class families with hanging laundry and many flowers along withe the ubiquitous bottles of water from the fountain that residents have at their doors. The old synagogue is worth a visit but even if you just wander without a plan, you will enjoy this beautiful old town.

We easily parked on the street and depending on your interests, you can find ice cream, drinks or outside lunches.

Well preserved unique jewish quarter
Aug 2018 • Couples
This is a unique jewish quarter that is beautifully preserved. Although most of the houses have been refurbished there are a few of them that look as if they were going to fall. View from here to the mountains is just great.

A pretty neighbourhood
Nov 2017 • Friends
As is the case in many Spanish and Portuguese towns, there is a desire to recover the memory of when the Jewish people were there. Nevertheless, there is not too much which is truly Jewish left after more than 500 years since their expulsion. But the neighbourhood is very interesting to walk around.

Nice place to visit.

We wandered the narrow, steep, cobblestone streets, with well preserved, tiny houses either side. Some of the houses were being renovated. This area is just below the castle and the synagogue is situated within this area. Worth a visit.

Its all still there: the streets with the signs, the buildings, the environment. The museum is also worth the visit

Just Delightful
Sep 2017 • Couples
No maps or apps needed. Just wander about the steep winding cobbled lanes and you will be delighted. When lost, we always knew the direction to take: UP. Eventually you will make your way to the castle with perhaps a brief stop at the synagogue museum. We took our time and throughly enjoyed the beauty and history these little lanes have seen. Some homes have well tended potted gardens on the stoops. Others appear to be abandoned. We did find our way to the old laundry fountain by accident and were so glad we hadn't missed it. The whole area is so picturesque!

Beautiful small streets with flowers
Aug 2017 • Couples
We just walked around and enjoyed it very much. Seeing the small streets with flowers was nice. The old buildings and still very good taken care of, was nice to see.
Just start near the castel and walk back to the centre.
