The town of Alvito is nestled in the Alentejo region, about 178 km southeast of Lisbon. Alvito received its feudal rights in 1280, and grew to a total of 1,700 inhabitants by the early 16th C. It was around this time that the Castle of Alvito was rebuilt, using a combination of Manueline (Portuguese late Gothic) and Mudéjar (Arab-influenced) styles that are typical of the region.
The Castle of Alvito was converted into a hotel in 1993 and today welcomes visitors as part of the Pousadas group. The hotel offers Standard rooms, larger Superior rooms, and one Suite. The Suite dates back to the 15th C. and used to be the Queen’s suite. For more information and reservations, click here.
