Fodor's Expert Review Pousada Convento Évora

Largo do Conde de Vila Flor, Évora, Évora, 7000-804, Portugal

Also known as Pousada de Loios, the former monks' cells in this luxurious convent-turned-pousada have been polished with modern conveniences, retaining their old-world style but leaving no trace of monastic austerity. Opulent period furnishings dot bedrooms and elegant public spaces. Order a glass of tawny port and perch by the fireplace in the charming, fit-for-a-king lobby. Superbly prepared Alentejo specialties are served in the restaurant, a marvel of Manueline details.
