Near Évora, the Monte do Carmo Hotel lies on a magical site. The Hotel was built from the centuries-old inns where the pilgrims (feast day on the 2nd Sunday of September) were given shelter when they came to pay homage or to express their gratitude to Senhora do Carmo for any kind of grace granted. There are four blocks built as a square around the church and where modern comfort goes hand in hand with the austerity of the thick walls and the vitality of the traditional materials which are comforting.

There is a restaurant and small bar for those who wish for absolute calm and who want to leave the hotel only for a brisk walk around the vast and well kept estate around it. Here in the midst of cork oaks and fields where the only noise is that of the flock of sheep or herd of pigs grazing in the open and the only surprise movement is that of rabbits or hares running away as we pass by, we can appreciate the most precious luxury of our times; true pastoral serenity.
