Hotel description

The History of the Hotel in Portugal
The origins of the monastery, which now houses the Hotel Pousada de Amares – Santa Mario do Bouro, remain uncertain. Records trace the history of the historic hotel back into the 12th century. The name of the historic hotel comes from the order of Mosteiro Santa Maria de Bouro, which resided in the monastery. The building was constructed in a quiet remote place, according to the custom of the time after the Benedictine Order was reformed by Robert of Molesme, who decreed a return to asceticism. Today, the guests of Pousada de Amares benefit from the remote location of the romantic hotel. Up away from the hectic tourist resorts of Portugal, here time seems to stand still. Could there be a better place to get away and enjoy a sunny vacation?
