From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
The walled city of Évora, a World Heritage Site in the Alentejo region, is a great destination for its whitewashed Baroque churches; gentle ambience; and now, on the outskirts of town, the Convento do Espinheiro, a lovely resort in a monastery dating from 1458. It has huge outdoor and indoor pools, a tennis court, and a full spa, so guests can mix a cultural discovery with a sun-and-spa getaway. The 59 rooms are divided between those created from the monks' cells and smaller new rooms. The former have more charm and easier access to the azu.lejo-bedecked chapel—a real jaw-dropper. Staff make up for any slip-ups in their newly minted English with a meticulous attention to detail. —2006 Hot List
