A luxurious experience in a historical atmosphere.
Located close to the city of Évora, well in the heart of the vast plains of the Alentejo, is the ancient and recently refurbished Convento do Espinheiro, a convent currently transformed into a surprising luxury hotel.
The convent has its origins in a legend that tells of an apparition of the Virgin Mary on a thorn bush. In 1458, given the importance of this place as a destination for pilgrimages, a church and later a convent were built and even hosted the Kings of Portugal.
Currently, after three years of refurbishment work, the building retains its character, with an attractive style that respects its history and also a luxurious interior design. The rooms and suites, fully equipped to guarantee your utmost comfort, are distributed throughout the new wing and the convent.
Several details that reflect the harmony of the past intertwined with the present stand out brilliantly. In the former wine cellar a refined gourmet restaurant has been created. The kitchen once used by the monks has been converted into a unique piano bar and the Gothic cistern has been transformed into a delightful area for tasting regional products and wines.
During your stay be sure not to miss the relaxing SPA treatments which fuse the highest quality natural ingredients with contemporary and ancestral therapeutic techniques. Also be sure to take the opportunity to visit the historical centre of Évora, a World Heritage site.
