Pousada de Santa Marinha
Close to Guimarães' historic centre, on the slopes overlooking the city, we encounter the majestic Pousada de Santa Marinha, resulting from the restoration of an exquisite 12th century Convent of the Augustines.
The reconversion project, by Portuguese architect Fernando Távora, won the National Architecture Prize in 1985. Fernando Távora was one of the founders of the so-called Oporto School - the innovative teaching body of the Faculty of Architecture, where he taught other distinguished architects such as Siza Vieira and Souto Moura.
The Pousada’s many attractions entices us to make an extended stay, including the Parque da Penha, the small gardens and interior recesses adorned with granite fountains, the rich azulejo tile panels, the cloisters, the multiple verandas and terraces overlooking the city and a magnificent menu and wine list.
