Former Monastery Hotel
Fascinating for its history, authentic for its charm and only one hour away from Lisbon, the hotel has given new life to a 15th century convent, considered a national monument, where important nobles throughout history helped shape Portugal's destiny.
Dominating the Alentejo plain lies Évora, a city of outstanding beauty, and classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site, it is a treasure with much to offer, not only historically and culturally, but also in gastronomy.
Many legends and miracles are linked to this convent; for example, the 1098 year old olive tree, that still produces olives and exceptional olive oil, despite its age.
