The Pousada Santa Marinha
-
a former 12 century Augustinian monastery - sits majestically on a hill overlooking the historical centre of Guimar„es. This luxury hotel has won national awards for the incredible restoration that has been accomplished.

It is surrounded by superb gardens that contain a rare combination of plants and trees, as well as a man-made lake. The building itself is rich with Portuguese glazed tiles, elegant cloisters, and wonderful terraces that look down over the city and valley below. The wonderful tiles (azulejos) represent a beautiful set of pictures of the life in Portugal in the 18th century;  banquets, shepherds, elephant and wild boar hunting, games, concerts, fishing practices, and are truly remarkable.
