The Pousada Convento de Vila Viçosa, located in the region of Alto Alentejo, is located close to the historical centre of Vila Viçosa and is surrounded by beautiful gardens. Situated between Elvas, Borba and Redondo, Vila Viçosa is a quaint village, rich with history. The Pousada is located in the former Convent of the Chagas de Cristo, built on the orders of Jaime IV, Duke of Bragança, in the 16th century.
During your stay you can enjoy the outdoor swimming pool, have fun in the games room and relax in the drawing room that also has a piano. For your meals, we have a restaurant and a bar.
The rooms are decorated in warm colours and are equipped with television and free Wi-Fi. There are 11 themed rooms with decoration and elements unique to each one.
A religious house built more than 500 years ago to serve as the Pantheon to the ladies of the House of Braganza, the second most powerful noble family in the country, only after the Royal Family. Located next to the Ducal Palace, the convent, the church and the palace are witnesses of a rich historical era and, thanks to D. João IV, the Restorer, they serve as examples of a beauty and richness that are difficult to match.
