The Pousada Convento de Tavira – Historic Hotel is simply stunning.
Situated in a restored convent overlooking the town and in the heart of the ancient quarter, it provides the ideal spot to explore the Eastern Algarve with its rich history, beautiful climate and excellent golf courses including Benamor Golf Club, Quinta do Vale Golf Club, Castro Marim Golf & Country Club, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima Golf Club and of course, the amazing Monte Rei Golf & Country Club – a Jack Nicklaus “Signature” resort.
The Pousada Convento de Tavira – Historic Hotel provides easy access on foot to the many restaurants and bars within the town and is only a short walk from the Ria Formosa which flows serenely through the centre of town. All rooms are charming, unique and well equipped combining ancient majesty with modernity and style.
The Convent was once the Convent of the Cloistered Augustinian Nuns, which was founded by King D. Sebastiao around 1569. It stands on the castle hill on the site of what was once most likely the Jewish quarter.
Its most noteworthy features are the 16th & 17th century Renaissance cloister, the facade facing the main square and the central staircase, both in baroque style. Archaeological traces of Islamic origin were discovered during the restoration work. As a result, the plans were changed to include the finds in the building, where they are now partially visible from the bar. This is a truly unforgettable place to stay and only 30km from Faro Airport.
