“A beautifully restored 16th Century convent on Tavira’s castle hill. With Renaissance cloisters, courtyard pool and central garden. Pretty rooms with splashes of bright colour and private balconies. Enjoy the traditional regional cuisine and wide range of Portuguese wines. ”

Hotel Review

Thirty-seven churches and a Roman bridge make Tavira a fascinating place to explore. An historical gem on the Eastern Algarve, it has unique roofs, which turn up pagoda-like. The opening of the Convento da Graça, means you can stay in comfort, within its Renaissance cloisters and above the well-preserved remains of a 12th-century Islamic village. Bedrooms are cosy but compact with glimpses over the famous rooftops. Regional dishes are served in the restaurant.

"Baroque and Renaissance architecture is mixed in this grand, 16th-century building, which has wonderful cloisters and the visible remains of a 12th-century Moorish village, discovered during excavations."
