Fodor's Expert Review Pousada de Santa Maria

Rua 24 de Janeiro 7, Marvão, Portalegre, 7330-122, Portugal

Several old houses within the city walls were joined to create the Pousada de Santa Maria, one of the area's prettiest lodgings. Guest rooms are decorated with traditional Alentejo furnishings, and the restaurant, serves some of the best regional dishes in the village. The back of the hotel is encased in glass, with gorgeous views of the mountains and countryside. If you have to choose one or two pousadas to visit during your trip to Portugal, this one can be missed.
