Former Monastery Hotel

During the early 16th century, a Franciscan convent was built where the hotel stands today. Since the 17th century was an era of many and intense wars for Portugal, a strong fortification was built around the monastery, resulting in soldiers and monks living together in its premises. The building was turned into a hotel in 1997.

Former Monastery Hotel

Initially built in 1840 as a private family house, the building came to the possession of the Anglican church in the 1870s. The Anglican nuns used to reside in it and they also built a chapel in the centre of the property. The mission of the Anglican nuns was to care for young women who were in need, and those women gave back to the convent by building a small laundry business. The building was used as a convent for about 50 years before being sold to another owner and turned into a hotel.

Historic Hotel

The history of this building began in 1840 when it was first constructed in order to be a private family home. However, during the 1870s, the building came to be owned by the Anglican church and was turned into a convent where nuns and young women in need were residing. Its life as a convent lasted for only 50 years, as it was purchased by a family in the 1950s and turned into "The Milton Hotel". The hotel changed hands one more time until it was bought by its current owners in 1976 and was turned into the hotel that it is today.
