This exceptionally beautiful Hotel Tavira
is housed in the former Convent of the Cloistered Augustinian Nuns founded by King D. Sebastiao in the 16th century. It has been superbly restored and features a Renaissance cloister and Baroque staircase. During the restoration several archaeological traces of Islamic origin were discovered which are now partially visible from the bar.
This Hotel Convento Da Graca is a short walk from the town centre standing on the site of what was once most likely the Jewish quarter of Tavira. Once guests have explored the town, they can relax by the Pousada’s beautiful swimming pool or, enjoy a drink in the elegant courtyard.
The Pousada Tavira has 36 rooms, including 3 superior rooms, 5 suites and 1 special suite. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, heating/air conditioning, telephone, Cable TV, hairdryer, safe and internet access.
The convent’s church has been converted into a multi-purpose function room perfect for weddings, meetings or conferences.
Tavira is a very typical Algarvean town in terms of its history and it is considered to be one of the few ‘unspoilt’ locations as it has not been adversely affected by the more recent influx of tourists. Tavira has been influenced by many civilizations; it was once a Phoenician village, it was habited by the Romans and it was an important city during the Muslim occupation.
