This striking pousada is set in the former S. Joao Evangelista Monastery, a 15th-century building which was constructed over the ruins of a Moorish castle in Evora. Each room is unique, and all are set in the former chambers of the Cannons Regular, featuring superior wood furnishings and a private bathroom with bath and shower. The ornate Presidential Suite also offers the addition of romantic frescoed walls and a small private patio. Guests might choose to dine on traditional regional dishes in the restaurant or in the elegant, arched corridors of the cloisters. The city's famous aqueduct is within a ten-minute walk, while the Museum of Evora, Evora Cathedral, and the Roman Temple of Diana are all just a few metres away. Additionally, the pousada offers expert information on the best places to sightsee and taste the region's wonderful wines, making this an excellent base for a cultural holiday in the heart of Portugal.
