Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães - Monument Hotel
Portugal - Douro and Minho - Guimarães

Feel at home like a king in the place where Portugal was born.

On the hill overlooking the historical city of Guimarães the majestic Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães - Monument Hotel rises up, fruit of the refurbishment of the ancient Agostinhos Convent from the 12th century.

This convent, initially a school of higher studies for the monks of the Order of Saint Agostinho, was left seriously derelict in the 20th century following a fire. The recuperation works conducted years later were able to transform the formerly cold spaces of yesteryear into warm and comfortable environments of today. The achievements of this project were recognised with the 1985 National Architecture Award.

Luxurious pieces of furniture from the convent’s estate were used and out of the monks cells rooms were created. Other spaces to highlight are the rooms for events, a restaurant with varied and refined cuisine and a cosy bar with the perfect fireplace to warm the coldest nights.

At this hotel, niches with granite fountains, priceless tile panels, secular cloisters, balconies and terraces directed at the landscape await being found. On the outside there is also a swimming pool, small gardens and the beautiful surrounding Penha park.

A cultural visit to Guimarães, the birthplace of Portugal, along with activities such as golf, various strolls, horseback riding or cycling are recommended to enrich the day.

"Really beautiful place, in an old convent but renovated on a very high standard. Nice and very big room. Nice location - on a hill overlooking the city but calm at night. Very good service."

"The building is very nice. We took a room in the old monastery. The gardens are indeed very beautiful and the abandoned, ruined pond in the back was for us the highlight."

"The hotel is wonderfully decorated, with a cosy ambiance despite maintaining the original spirit. The decoration was simple, but tasteful and the bathroom had a wonderful radiating floor. The breakfast was good, but still had a good variety of quality fruits and cakes."

"The building has a wealth of features including vast rooms, high ceilings, tiled walls and antique furniture. The grounds provide a great mix of formal gardens, wild areas and a secret pond. It also has a fairly big pool which was kept scrupulously clean. We stayed in one of the ‘cell’ rooms which was fun, it not a little on the small side."
