By turning old buildings (like this former convent) into the best of boutique hotels the government really knows what they are doing. This was beautiful with an ancient Roman Temple of Diana just outside the main entrance. The atmosphere was serene with a grand staircase from the lobby up to the rooms setting the tone for the whole visit. The town itself is ancient, historical and quaint with a Gothic Church (Cathedral Evora) completed in the 13th/14th century; the S. Franciscan Church with the Capela Dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones) and a huge main square build by King Duarte with several restaurants for people watching. Wander and see the whimsical side of the town with supended umbrellas in the streets. Lovely shops for the shopper - cork products everywhere!
