Pousada Mosteiro Crato

Description

Originally a 14th-century convent, Pousada Mosteiro do Crato has operated as a castle, a palace, and now a modern luxury hotel. It features an outdoor pool with a sun terrace. Set on the northern edge of the hot, Alentejan plain, this 14th-century monastery and castle is a stunning property. The stylish modern wing has been imaginatively blended with the excellently preserved historic buildings of the Pousada and the interior is fresh and welcoming, yet retains its authentic charm. The restaurant deserves particular mention as it is set in one of the magnificent cloisters and serves excellent traditional dishes. The Monastery is also home to a small museum of medieval sculpture and national art.
