Once a count's mansion - now a pensão Jul 25, 2010
I hesitated over the cost - by Portuguese standards it may be average - but I'm English! If you ask for the road in Evora, you will get a blank stare - at least if you Portuguese accent is no better than mine - but everybody seemed to know the way to the hotel.

It was built in the sixteenth century as the mansion of the Counts of Lousã and both the time and the status remain very credible.

The woman in reception was most agreeable and was happy to recommend a cheap, friendly and delicious place to eat.

The location is as good as anywhere other than the pousada, which is right by the cathedral and the Roman temple of Diana. This is pretty close to them but they are not visible from the windows.

Pensao Residencial Policarpo Overview

An historical place in a World Heritage cityPENSAO Residencial POLICARPO occupies a building dating from the end of the 16th century, which was in earlier times the manor house of the Counts of Lousa. This noble house has an imposing principal facade which faces south, and thus offers an impressive panorama over the Alentejan plain. On the other side, the house opens on to a small patio, giving direct access to the reception. A very visible architectural feature is the fact that the house bestrides the ancient Roman wall. These elements, together with the fact that the Counts of Lousa’s manor house has provided hotel accommodation for over 80 years under the direction and management of the POLICARPO family, who has always emphasized a familiar ambiance and conviviality, based on the authenticity of this special place.
