We ended up in this pousada after we were not able to get accommodation in Evora. Initially we booked for 2 nights but we were so impressed with this property that we stayed an extra day. We used it as a base to tour the surrounding countryside and the medieval towns. Would definitely recommend it and would stay here again.
You feel the history of the place as soon as you walk in. I could not believe some of the amazing frescos on the walls! The staff are extremely competent and welcoming and the pousada is itself a very interesting place to visit. The pool is peaceful and pleasant, it is located next to the main attraction in town and there are quite a few good restaurants nearby as well.
My wife and I spent one night. It is a very large facility (especially for one with only 41 guest rooms) with many interesting public spaces. The re-use of this former religious facility has been thoughtful. We would return for a short retreat, as it is removed from nearby distractions. The website for the hotel is quite good, but only an actual visit can let you learn how wonderful a place it is.

We stayed for 3 nights in October and had a great stay. Enjoyed the walks up the hill to town, with the benefit of being in a quiet location. Ate at great restaurants in town and enjoyed the historic sites.
