Today, its fine tradition for luxury and service continue under the care and management of Portugal's best-known hotel family.

Unique location in a Palace around a Old Convent

Would recommend Thu, Dec 26, 2013
A Palace that had been used by the last King of Portugal that was built around an ancient Convent has been turned into a luxury guest hotel. An excellent staff and luxury dining.

Time saver

Your GPS will get your near the Palace (Hotel) but mine could not quite locate the Hotel. However the area is well marked once you get close, so I set my GPS on the town.
