Stay in Pousada Mosteiro de Guimaraes
Pousadas are the Portuguese version of the Spanish paradors. They are former monasteries and convents that have been converted into hotels. Pousada Mosteiro de Guimaraes won’t give you the authentic religious experience, but it will give you a lot of luxury and comfort.
The building is a beautifully restored 12th century Augustine convent, which is now a luxury hotel. It overlooks Guimaraes and has a courtyard, garden, and pool.
