Named Cividade dos Áravos (Civitas Aravorum) in Roman times, it was rebuilt in the time of Trajan and Hadrian, and was a point of confluence and intersection of roads, including the imperial road from Guarda to Numão.
The Goths settled in the region, changing the name to São Justo, succeeding them to the Arab occupation and its new name, Malva, reconquered by D. Fernando Magno de Leão in 1063, and again renamed to Marialva.
D. Afonso Henriques ordered it to be repopulated, granting it the first charter in 1179. A new repopulation was known during the reign of D. Sancho I, in the 13th century, at which time the village would have passed beyond walls, thus forming the Arrabalde.
During the reign of D. Dinis the Fair was created (1286) and received Foral Novo (1512) in the time of D. Manuel. Both of them proceeded to work in the castle.
Possibly derived to the border location - and stimulated by the Fair, on the 15th day of each month, which granted various privileges to the residents and marketers - was seen in the twelfth century to fix Jews.

Yesterday we drove through Portugal’s Serra de Estrela mountains to make our way back to one of the most astonishing places I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting, Piódão. With seriously sweaty palms and fear of looking down the steep mountains as we made our way through a one way dirt road up and down curves and fields of burned trees from last year’s fires that killed many people and destroyed hundreds of homes, we were completely charmed by the majesty of Piódão as it came into view across the mountain. This village’s homes and streets are amazingly all made of schist rock, displaying an astounding ability of man to adapt to the most hostile environment and make the best of it. #exploringportugal#portugal 🇵🇹 #amazing_shots#bestoftravel#unbelievableplace
These are some of the coolest wines I have come across in the past couple years. The Poço do Lobo wines are insanely good. It is incredibly rare to be able to access well-stored mature wines from any supplier, let alone doing so without paying a small fortune. These are a notable exception. Both wines hail from the 1995 vintage. The Arinto comes across like 1er Cru Meursault with bottle age and the Cab reminds of St-Julien from a classic vintage. This is an amazing opportunity to look backward in time through the bottom of your glass. Both wines below $50. Come in and try them before they sell out. #pocodolobo#cavessaojoao#arinto#beiras#portugal#portuguesewines
