With an impressive history dating back to the 13th century, the Pousada of Beja
is located in the heart of the city. The Hotel Beja
has retained many of the original features of the convent’s 800 year history - the spacious rooms and high ceilings provide a perfect refuge for guests wishing to escape the hot Alentejan summer sun.
Despite its central location in Beja, the Hotel Sao Francisco has interior decor, with vaulted ceilings and beautiful lounge areas and delightful gardens, which feature a swimming pool, and make it an ideal place to relax after exploring this fascinating city.
The Pousada Beja has 35 rooms, including 4 superior rooms and 1 suite. The rooms are located in the converted monk’s cells so what they lack in space, they make up for in character. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, air conditioning/heating, minibar, bathrobes, hairdryer, safe, telephone, cable TV and internet access.
The city of Beja, which is the largest town in the Alentejo, dates back to 48 BC when it was founded by Julius Ceasar. Beja is famous for its 14th century castle which was built by Dom Dinis I on the site of a Roman fort, and the basilica of Santo Amaro, one of the few surviving buildings from the period before the Moors ruled this area of Portugal. A walk through the narrow streets of the old quarter of Beja will reveal attractive white washed houses with iron doorways and window grills.
