sixteenth century convent situated in a valley in Arraiolos
he starting point for the Pousada was the
restoration of a sixteenth century convent situated in a valley in Arraiolos a
city that is world-famous for its carpets. The Pousada is an example of the
achievement of perfect harmony between the traditional and modern concepts of
Portuguese architecture and a felicitous example of adapting the austerity of a
convent to today's standards of comfort. A wonderful excuse to get to know the
traditional art of carpet-making.
