Great history surrounding this convent. Brief details can be picked up from the Pousada reception, as it has been converted into a beautiful luxury hotel. Lots of interesting and historical pieces throughout the building and gardens. Well worth a visit!
Superb choice of luxury hotel - glad we decided on it. Loads of local and ecclesiastical history evident in all corridors and public rooms. Fantastic old castle and a pillory about 10 minutes' walk from the convent.
The Pousada has been created in the 16C Convento das Chagas de Cristo and is elegant, comfortable, luxurious, atmospheric - I want to return! This is a wonderful base from which to explore Vila Vicosa and the surrounding countryside and its towns.
