The Convento do Desagravo was built on the orders of Count Dom Francisco de Lemos de Faria Pereira during the last quarter of the 18th century. It is a beautiful building, notable for its arches and bell tower, set in a superb location close to the Serra da Estrela and Serra do Acor mountains. The former convent has been carefully restored and adapted to create a stylish and comfortable hotel. There is a central courtyard with stone pillars with a natural pool in the centre, terracotta-tiled floors, antiques from the original convent and artistic wall hangings – not to mention a swimming pool and tennis courts. The elegant restaurant offers local dishes with a contemporary touch, and a seasonal mushroom menu. The chapel has been converted into a lounge and bar, yet keeps many original features. A true haven of peace and comfort.

The Pousada of Belmonte is situated on the slopes of the Serra da Esperanca in Central Portugal almost equidistant between Lisbon and Porto.
