Pousada History:

Graça Convent in Tavira was once the Convent of the Cloistered Augustinian Nuns, which was founded by King D. Sebastião around 1569. It stands on the castle hill on the site of what was once most likely the Jewish quarter. Its most noteworthy features are the 16th and 17th century Renaissance cloister, the facade facing the main square and the central staircase, both in baroque style. Archaeological traces of Islamic origin were discovered during the restoration work. As a result, the plans were changed to include the finds in the building, where they are now partially visible from the bar. The design includes a multi-purpose hall (in the old church).
