Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães

Echoes of Guimarães’ past in this former monastery and royal residence turned boutique hotel

Once upon a time, this magnificent retreat was home to Augustinian monks and then Portuguese royalty. Now, Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães’ hushed halls play host to a luxury hideaway. Follow in the footsteps of its former residents through ornamental gardens and peaceful cloisters. Then open doors to discover a refined restaurant and character-filled rooms, tailor-made for 21st-century escapes.

Swim the day away in the outdoor pool, beside what was once the mill. Explore the Great Hall, Old Library and Chapter Room, admiring the 18th-century tiles and soaring oak ceilings. Then settle into the bar housed in what was once the monastery kitchen. There’s a huge fireplace and snug sofas inside, plus an outdoor terrace for warm evenings.

From the old stone fountain to the Johannine tiles, there’s so much to see around Pousada Mosteiro de Guimarães. And that sense of history continues down the hill to Guimarães itself – a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Meander through the winding streets and café-lined squares, soaking up its medieval past. See the castle and 15th-century palace that stand side by side. Or indulge your sporting spirit with everything from golf courses to jeep tours within reach. Then take yourself back to the hotel for a well-deserved massage in the comfort of your room.


Enjoy your stay!

Lovely room, very friendly staff and service, great location

Stayed in a lovely suite with ample space as I was a lone traveller. Great service with nice extra little touches. Breakfast had a nice selection with some hot food choices. Bar was comfy and although there was a large group, it made for a lively space. Lovely gardens even in the wet weather.

We had a great time wandering through the corridors of the monastery, exploring

The walk through the gardens was like a journey through time with a discovery at the end of each path and corners to meditate and feel for a moment suspended outside of time. The arrival at night leaves a rather magical first impression. The child who accompanied us tripped with joy when he saw the Read more[SPLIT]Read lessmonastery and passed the door. He kept saying that he had never seen a place like this.

History nad hospitality!

A former Monastery transformed by one of the most renowed portuguese architecture into a small(ish) luxury hotel. Very quiet. Luxurious gardens, very friendly and helpful staff. Bring your own car (parking availablke and free), as you are a bit fra form Guimarães' centre.
