The Hotel in Detail

Experience Portugal's medieval heritage with a luxury escape at Pousada Mosteiro do Crato. Originally built during the 14th century, it was the headquarters of the Knights Hospitaller. Over the years its rosy stone walls have housed a gothic church, a Renaissance convent and a lavish manor house. Step inside and you can still sense the rich history that runs throughout the hotel. Then sit back and relax amid carefully renovated, modern interiors that capture the calm atmosphere of the monastery’s heyday.

Soak up the peace and tranquillity of each room, where chic, contemporary furnishings contrast against gothic arches and ancient walls. Climb up to your exclusive suite in the monastery tower, or seek out the secret cloisters. Stretch out on a sun lounger, dive into the pool, or explore the gardens. Watch the sun set over the Alentejo countryside, then enjoy a leisurely evening spent sampling authentic regional dishes.

Outside of Pousada Mosteiro do Crato you’ll find plenty of sites to discover. Seek out historic churches and tucked away chapels in Crato, or visit the regional capital, Portalegre, to explore its pretty old town. There’s an array of outdoor activities to enjoy too, from traditional country pursuits including horse riding, hunting and falconry, to a game of tennis.
