This Pousada, converted from a 16th century monastery, is set in the green valley of Arraiolos, a city known for the traditional art of carpet making. The woven carpets of Arraiolos, originally based on the Persian designs but more colourful in style can be purchased locally. There are also some excellent examples of Azulejos tiles displayed in the 16th century Misericordia building of this quaint, white-washed medieval city.
