Although the Convento do Espinheiro is located in Evora - which is not on the usual tourist agenda - it is definitely worth a visit. The original part of this hotel (the chapel) was built in 1458 and has now been fully restored. It is beautiful and hosts many weddings. The restaurant in the hotel occupies the former wine cellar and is 5-star! And the staff is young, energetic and extremely helpful.
In addition, the newer areas of the hotel are modern and full of the latest comforts (including a self-cleaning and heated toilet seat). And the pool area is lovely.
Be sure to take the hotel tour - which is offered every afternoon - to learn about the interesting history of the Convento do Espinheiro. Then spend some time in Evora. It's a lovely little town with lots of interesting history and some superb restaurants!
