The preservation of the impressive collection of tiles requires a new way of using yhe museum wing. The old monks cells, their corridors and fountains are a real living museum. These spaces will be available only in exceptional cases, giving our guests the opportunity to not only visit the museum as being able to take advantage of this unique experience.
Keen to appreciate its uniqueness, the Convento de São Paulo invest in a new form of status in relation to his location. Housed in a 600 hectare estate, our first bet is on the rural surrounds. Already with a wide range of programs of agricultural activities, as well as two walking or mountain biking trails, the Hotel is now preparing a series of new products that allow our guests a rural experience.
Enclosed by a 600 acres property of woodland, the Hotel has set up several pedestrian courses, adequately identified and signalized. With several levels of difficulty, you can start by exploring the vegetable gardens, the orchards and the different gardens that surround the buildings, with no need to follow directions or follow specific trails. Simply wander about and enjoy! But if you are an adventurer, feel free to choose the longer courses. Be sure to include a visit to the chapel of Nossa Senhora do Monte Virgem, to the village Aldeia da Serra and to the fountain of the Senhora da Saúde. Alternatively, you can follow the same trails but on a bicycle or driving an all-road vehicle and add the highest spot of the Serra ? Alto de São Gens ? to your itinerary. Whichever alternative you choose, be sure to do it early, to enjoy the freshness of the morning air.
Two outdoor pools and a tennis court are also available so that you can make the most of your free time.
