Pousada Convento de Arraiolos

Pousada Convento de Arraiolos

The town of Arraiolos is a typical Alentejan village characterised by its low white cube houses with blue borders to ward off the devil. The main attraction of Arraiolos, however, are the women who, in their cottages on the main street, knot the famous cheerful carpets with floral motifs: carpets that adorn numerous mansions and palaces in Portugal. Arraiolos is ideally situated to visit the sun-drenched Alentejo and in particular Evora, which is one of the most beautiful towns in Portugal and cradle of Madredeus. After all, even if people sometimes laugh at the slow pace of the 'Alentejanos', they are praised by all for their singing skills and craftsmanship....
