The original building is known as Convento de. S. Domingos, dating from 1242, is a historic building commissioned by King Sancho II. Today, worship is replaced by wellness with a sauna, fitness suite and indoor plunge pool now overlooking the rooftop’s unrivalled views of the city’s ancient architecture including the Sao Domingos church.
The hotel offers an all-day dining experience, Capitulo serving Chef Victor Sobral’s contemporary interpretations of traditional Portuguese classics. Light bites and beverages are served in the emblematic open-air cloister or a choice of tapas with live music can be enjoyed in the lounge.
