Pousada in Evora

Pousada in Evora

[December, 2011] In Evora, Portugal, we stayed in a hotel called Pousada, which used to be a convent.

It became a luxurious hotel in 1965, apparently.

The lower building on the right in the photo is the one.

Our room was a suite situated as if it was an annex, decorated in mint colour.

The bathroom was nice, too.

I walked around the other part of the hotel and found that each cell for nuns was renovated to a guest room.

The location is excellent, too.

I recommend this.

By the way the Pousadas are all over Portugal.

There seems about 40 of them.

It is a bit more expensive than the ordinary hotels of this class, but staying here itself is an interesting experience.
