We stayed at the Pousada for two nights in early October and staying in the castle was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Perched atop a small town in the Alentejo, the Pousada is an impressive sight, especially at night. When we walked through the corridors and explored the grounds it felt like we had been transported back in time. Make sure you climb up the old tower and ask to see the private chapel.
Make sure you get directions from the hotel before driving into town! We did not and relied on our GPS for directions, which resulted in some very challenging driving through narrow cobblestone roads.
