Pousada Convento Beja

Description

This impressive Pousada, housed in a 13th-century Franciscan convent, is located in the heart of the historical town of Beja in the Alentejan plain. Despite the fact that it is in the middle of a city, the solid white walls, vaulted ceilings and elegant sitting rooms give off an air of calm and quiet. Surrounded by lawns, palm trees and with an inviting outdoor pool this is the perfect place to stay cool even in the intense heat of mid-summer. The bedrooms (which are of modest, though comfortable, proportions as they were once monk’s cells!) are now beautifully furnished to the highest standards, and are positioned around three sides of a cloister.

How To Arrive

Location

Beja is in south central Portugal on a small hill overlooking the Alentejan plains. It is a lovely town with a charming historic centre with white-washed buildings and narrow cobbled streets. The impressive 13th century Castelo de Beja dominates the town, offering beautiful panoramic views.
