Pousada Mosteiro de Amares

Swap contemporary life for cloisters and step inside Pousada Mosteiro de Amares – a centuries-old sanctuary that oozes serenity and style. Wander the peaceful gardens that circle the hotel, stopping to admire sculptures. Take a dip in the outdoor pool, surrounded by mountains. Then, sip drinks and enjoy panoramic views from the hillside terrace.

Inside you'll find fresh, modern styling with a nod to the site’s history – exposed stone archways, high ceilings and deep-set window seats. Look out for the old chimney as you enjoy fine dining in the former monastery. Or eat outside in the courtyard, lit by torchlight.

Made for utter tranquillity, yet moments from the sights of Braga, Pousada Mosteiro de Amares is a blissful base for a country escape. Delve into the spectacular landscapes of the Peneda-Gerês National Park – its hiking trails, waterfalls and lakes beg to be explored. Seek out rural villages, medieval churches and hilltop monasteries. Or discover cultural gems in the sleepy city of Braga.
