Convent of the Hawthorn

Located only 4 km from Évora, a UNESCO World Heritage city.

The original building of the XV is considered national heritage, and its origins go back to a legend that speaks of the appearance of the Virgin Mary on a Hawthorn, around the year 1400.
In 1412, an oratory was built in honor of Our Lady and finally in 1458, during the reign of King Afonso V, and given the increasing importance of this place as a pilgrimage point, the Church was founded and later the Convent.

 Convento do Espinheiro Historic Hotel & Spa is surrounded by 8 hectares of beautiful gardens and its interior has been luxuriously decorated, retaining the character of the old times.
Stroll in the same gardens where princes and princesses have walked, feel as special as them and eternalize the best moment of your life.
