To the north of the hilltop town of Crato stands the Pousada. Originally built in 1356 this monastery-fortress has served as a castle, convent and palace and evidence of this illustrious past can still be seen throughout the property. The fortress was converted into a hotel in 1995 under the guidance of architect João Carrilho de Graça who carefully introduced an understated modern interior that subtly complements the charm of the original building.

Located 24km from the walled town of Portalegre, near to the Spanish border, the hotel is an ideal base from which to explore the Natural Park of Serra de São Mamede or to venture into neighbouring Spain.
