A castle, a convent and a palace, built in different periods, were the origin of this ecclesiastical architectural work of outstanding harmony. The former Knights of the Order of Malta's monastery, is surrounded in medieval mystic. Flor da Rosa Pousada manages to combine the genuine characteristics of the convent, highlighting them with an architectural project, which although modern, entirely respects its origins.
In the second half of the 14th century, friar Álvaro Gonçalves Pereira, the hospital prior, ordered the building of the Pousada Flor da Rosa Monastery, where he would live, in the building which formed the annex.
This building, with its medieval roots, has a gothic structure, from which certain architectural details from other eras emerge from time to time, particularly Manueline (16th century) features as a result of subsequent building work.
Built on eminently defensive line, this palace-cum-monastery has architectural features, such as towers, window slits and solid block construction, which give it the appearance more of a fort than a monastic house.
Taking advantage of the restoration required after a violent earthquake in 1755, a number of architectural innovations were introduced to the church. After the elimination of the religious orders in Portugal in 1834, the monastery was abandoned, which greatly accelerated its decay and ruin. Thus, when at the end of the nineteenth century a violent storm devastated the region, the torrential rains caused the roof of church nave to collapse, among other things. It was not rebuilt until many years later.
The Pousada has 24 Rooms, 3 of which are luxurious and located in the Monastery's Tower.The rooms have the following equipment:
Restaurant with capacity for 120 people, where you can taste the different and delicious recipes of Alentejo.
