Pousada Convento Tavira


The Pousada de Tavira opened in 2006 and is located within the buildings of the Graça Convent, which was founded by King Sebastian I in the 16th century for the Cloistered Augustinian Nuns. It features a 16th and 17th century Renaissance cloister and a baroque-style central staircase. This exceptionally beautiful Pousada stands on what was once most likely the Jewish quarter of the attractive seaside town of Tavira, which is steeped in history and famous for its 37 churches. The rooms are modern in style and there is a swimming pool, garden and an excellent restaurant.
