The Pousada

The Pousada

The starting point for the Pousada was the restoration of a sixteenth century convent situated in a valley in Arraiolos a city that is world-famous for its carpets.

The Pousada is an example of the achievement of perfect harmony between the traditional and modern concepts of Portuguese architecture and a felicitous example of adapting the austerity of a convent to today's standards of comfort. A wonderful excuse to get to know the traditional art of carpet-making.


The ancient little town of Arraiolos about 20km/12 miles north of Évora, referred to by the Alexandrian geographer Ptolemy under the name of Arandia, is set in delightful surroundings on a low hill above the wide Alentejo plain, with magnificent views.

The town is noted for its brightly colored woolen carpets which are made in a kind of cross-stitch.
