A Mui Nobre e Sempre Leal Vila de Marvão localiza-se no Distrito de Portalegre, região Alentejo e sub-região do Alto Alentejo, com cerca de 486 habitantes.

Situa-se no topo da Serra do Sapoio, a uma altitude de 860 metros.

É sede de um município com 154,85 km² de área e 3 512 habitantes (2011)1 , subdividido em 4 freguesias. O município é limitado a norte e leste pela Espanha, a sul e oeste pelo município de Portalegre e a noroeste por Castelo de Vide.

A vila e as montanhas escarpadas em que se localiza estão inscritas na lista de candidatos a Património Mundial da UNESCO desde 2000.

Desde, pelo menos, o período romano, que os rochedos de Marvão são utilizados como refúgio ou como ponto estratégico militar. No século X foi referida pelo historiador cordovês hispano-muçulmano Isa Ibn Áhmad ar-Rázi como Amaia de Ibn Maruán e Fortaleza de Amaia, fortaleza essa que em 884 serviu de refúgio ao fundador de Marvão, o rebelde muladi Ibn Marwan al-Yil'liqui, "O Galego" (morto em 889), líder de um movimento sufi no Al-Andaluz, que pegou em armas contra os emires de Córdova e criou uma espécie de reino independente sediado em Badajoz até à instauração do califado de Córdova em 931.

Quando D. Afonso Henriques e as suas forças militares tomaram a povoação de Alcácer do Sal aos mouros, entre 1160 e 1166, foram tomadas também as terras onde se encontrava já o Castelo de Marvão. Assim, não se sabendo exatamente o ano da sua edificação, fica claro que esta é uma fortificação de origem muçulmana.

A localidade foi conquistada aos muçulmanos por D. Afonso Henriques durante as campanhas de 1160/1166, tendo sido novamente tomada pelos mouros na contra-ofensiva de Almansor, em 1190. Em 1226, D. Sancho II dá foral à população e manda ampliar o castelo. Em 1226, D. Dinis disputa e apodera-se do castelo, que foi incluído no plano das suas reedificações militares e passou a ter uma grande importância estratégica nas guerras com castelhanos e espanhóis. [link]

The Most Noble and Ever Loyal Marvão Village is located in the district of Portalegre, Alentejo region and sub-region of Alto Alentejo, with about 486 inhabitants.

It is situated at the top of the Sierra Sapoio, at an altitude of 860 meters.

It is the seat of a municipality with 154.85 km ² and 3512 inhabitants (2011) 1, subdivided into four parishes. The city is bordered to the north and east by Spain, the south and west by the municipality of Portalegre and Castelo de Vide by Northwest.

The village and the rugged mountains in which it is located are included in the list of candidates for UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.

Since at least the Roman period, the cliffs Marvão are used as a refuge or as a strategic military. In the tenth century was mentioned by historian Cordovan Hispano-Muslim Isa Ahmad Ibn as Amaia air-Razi and Ibn Maruán Fortress of Amaia, this fortress in 884 that gave refuge to the founder of Marvão, the rebel Muladi Ibn Marwan al-Yil'liqui , "The Galician" (died 889), leader of a Sufi movement in Al-Andalus, which took up arms against the emirs of Córdoba and created a sort of independent kingdom based in Badajoz until the establishment of the Caliphate of Cordoba in 931.

When D. Afonso Henriques and his military forces took the town of Alcácer do Sal from the Moors, between 1160 and 1166, were also taken land which was already Marvão Castle. Thus, not knowing the exact year of its construction, it is clear that this is a fortification of Muslim origin.

The town was conquered by the Muslims D. Afonso Henriques during the campaigns of 1160/1166, and was again taken by the Moors in the counteroffensive Almanasor in 1190. In 1226, D. Sancho II gives charter to expand the population and have the castle. In 1226, D. Dinis dispute and takes possession of the castle, which was included in the plan of their reedificações military and now has a great strategic importance in the wars with Castilian and Spanish.
