After exploring the magnificent landscape, enjoy an evening in great company.
Nestled in a small mountain, with the village of Belmonte, the birthplace of Pedro Álvares Cabral, only a kilometre away, lies the Pousada de Belmonte - Historic Hotel.
This historical pousada emerged from the refurbishment of a small 13th century chapel and the ruins of the ancient Nossa Senhora da Esperança Convent, classified in 1986 as a public interest edifice.
This convent’s lengthy history has been preserved and utilised to achieve the perfect combination of the historical elements, the architecture, the cosy decor of the sitting rooms and the comfort of the pousada’s rooms.
Enjoy a dip in the pool, appreciate the valley view from the exceptional terrace and savour the regional gastronomic specialities of the restaurant. Perhaps, acquire a sculpture from the permanent exhibition of artworks by local artists.
Be sure to try the hiking paths, horseback riding or to experiment the excitement of a four wheel drive. Other enticing possibilities include fishing and Winter sports, as well as delving into the beauty of Serra da Estrela natural park.
