Delight in the regional gastronomy after an invigorating walk through the mountainside.
Amidst the immense Alentejo landscape, nestled into 600 hectare estate between Estremoz and Redondo lies the Convento de São Paulo, constructed in 1182 by hermits who valued tranquillity, well-being and prayer.
Currently converted into a rural tourism hotel, the Convento de São Paulo perpetuates, to this day, the atmosphere valued by the hermit monks. By complementing an almost millenary history with the comfort of today, this hotel has become a unique destination.
The sumptuous collection of Portuguese tiles, the terracotta bas-reliefs, the frescoes, a Florentine fountain and the old church, all justify the public interest classification obtained and will certainly also be worth your stay.
Some rooms are set in the convent’s ancient cells museum area, but possess all the comforts of modern life. The restaurant, the canteen where the hermits had their meals, serves the Alentejo’s regional dishes elaborated with produce from the estate and accompanied by wine from its cellar.
The day can be enthusiastically spent discovering all of nature’s wealth and the vast heritage of ancient civilisations, from Pre-historic monuments to Gothic constructions, or the Roman roads and temples littered all over the estate and the Alentejo in general.
Night time is enveloped by an unequalled tranquillity where the charm and quiet of the Convento de São Paulo, is gently rocked by the sounds of nature that invite a well-deserved rest.
