Pousada do Crato, Flor da Rosa
At the beginning of the twelfth century the Order of the Hospital was introduced into Portugal, known as the Malta Order. It was created to help the pilgrims on their pilgrimage to the Holy Land and later was turned into the military order.
A century later the Order’s headquarters of Portugal settled itself in Vila do Crato, which later became the head of the prior.
In the old Monastery of Santa Maria de Flor da Rosa
The Pousada do Crato is localized right in Alentejo, and installed in the old Santa Maria de Flor da Rosa Monastery.
D. Alvaro Goncalves Pereira, Grand Prior to the Hospital and also the father of D. Nuno Álvares Pereira, had the building erected in the fourteenth century.
In this important gothic national monument, you feel the spirits of medieval times in every corner taking us back to the time of the building of a new nation.
This luxury hotel in Crato is an example of the recovery of a Historic building into modern times without losing the monastic feel, calm and peaceful.
