If you are unable to stay at the Pousada, I am fairly certain you can explore and visit at least the cloisters of this royal convent founded in 1514. It became a Pousada in 1997.

Great history surrounding this convent. Brief details can be picked up from the Pousada reception, as it has been converted into a beautiful luxury hotel. Lots of interesting and historical pieces throughout the building and gardens. Well worth a visit!

Superb choice of luxury hotel - glad we decided on it. Loads of local and ecclesiastical history evident in all corridors and public rooms. Fantastic old castle and a pillory about 10 minutes' walk from the convent.

The Pousada has been created in the 16C Convento das Chagas de Cristo and is elegant, comfortable, luxurious, atmospheric - I want to return! This is a wonderful base from which to explore Vila Vicosa and the surrounding countryside and its towns.

The whole square on which both the palace and the convento (pousada) are situated have to be seen, even if you don't stay in the pousada or don't visit the interior of the palace (Museum)
