Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães

Once upon a time, this magnificent retreat was home to Augustinian monks and then Portuguese royalty. Now, Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães’ hushed halls play host to a luxury hideaway. Follow in the footsteps of its former residents through ornamental gardens and peaceful cloisters. Then open doors to discover a refined restaurant and character-filled rooms, tailor-made for 21st-century escapes.

Swim the day away in the outdoor pool, beside what was once the mill. Explore the Great Hall, Old Library and Chapter Room, admiring the 18th-century tiles and soaring oak ceilings. Then settle into the bar housed in what was once the monastery kitchen. There’s a huge fireplace and snug sofas inside, plus an outdoor terrace for warm evenings.

From the old stone fountain to the Johannine tiles, there’s so much to see around Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães. And that sense of history continues down the hill to Guimarães itself – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Meander through the winding streets and café-lined squares, soaking up its medieval past. See the castle and 15th-century palace that stand side by side. Or indulge your sporting spirit with everything from golf courses to jeep tours within reach. Then take yourself back to the hotel for a well-deserved massage in the comfort of your room.
