Pousada Convento Vila Viçosa

Top choice boutique hotel in Vila Viçosa

Next to the Paço Ducal, this former royal convent was once the ‘House of the Ladies of the Court’. Today this regal spot offers spacious rooms – one with original frescos – terraces and classic furnishings. Rooms open on to a striking inner courtyard.

It's an atmospheric place to wander at any time of day, particularly at night, when candles light up the old stone-walled corridors and lounge rooms with lavishly painted ceilings and artwork adorning the walls.
