A Monument Hotel Pousada do Gerês - Amares, Sta. Maria do Bouro
A Monument Hotel
At the heart of the Minho region, Amares offers a selection of wines with an enchanting flavour, fresh to the touch and pallet which unites the splendours of the region. A visit to the Peneda Gerês National Park is a must, taking the route around the Barragens de Vilarinho das Furnas, Salamonde and Caniçada. The Minho region is a genuine cultural treasure that will certainly enchant any visitor.
A remarkable work by architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, award winner of the 2011 Pritzker prize
On the road from Braga to Gerês the Pousada de Amares emerges, Santa Maria do Bouro is a result of the restoration of a twelfth century Cistercian Monastery, one of the more characteristic of this period in Portugal, of a remarkable work by architect Eduardo Souto de Moura, awarded the Pritzker award in 2011, the highest award in the architectural world.
 
This fantastic hotel in Gerês, surrounded by stunning gardens, has been extensively restored and adapted for modern times, has been transformed into a temple of peace.
 
The Pousada de Amares is located mere minutes from the National Park of Peneda Gerês, where you can enjoy the experience of a lifetime immersed in the stunning environment. The Pousada is only a few kilometres from the city of Braga, one of the focal religious points in Portugal, known for its baroque churches, splendid eighteenth century houses and elaborate parks and gardens.
The entire Pousada is a labyrinth of surprises; one of the most beautiful sites on location is the large stone chimney in the monk hall. From the outside of the Gerês hotel, guests can appreciate the extraordinary natural beauty and landscape.
 
The 32 chambers have been transformed into comfortable suites, modernized for a luxurious stay, offering scenic mountainous views, cable television, mini-bar and a private bathroom.
 
The restaurant, known as one of the most beautiful in all of Portugal, with its exceptional cuisine that, if it were not for the Minho region itself, would be a true jewel of Portuguese gastronomy. Its high ceilings and soft stone walls give it an aura and journey to a unique past.
 
We are sure that whoever should visit this place will find it difficult to stay here only once.  Here is the home of such specialties as ‘papas de sarrabulho' (a typical regional dish: pig's blood, which gives rise to the name sarrabulho, chicken, pork, sausage, ham, chorizo, cumin, lemon and bread or corn flour, among other ingredients.) and Bordalesa lamprey.
 
Activities available close to the Pousada de Amares include canoeing, fishing, hiking and horse-riding.
 
The ancient monk settlements of the Cistern Order call for a stay that will have you travelling through time, where bell tolls can be heard, offering a unique and pleasant experience.
 
** The Pousada de Amares, Santa Maria do Bouro, has been distinguished with the Express Award (2011) - Guia Boa Cama Boa Mesa (good bed good table) - distinguishing the Pousada with the Gold key. The Pousada de Amares was also the sole Portuguese reference in the book Taschen’s Favourite Hotels, considered the travel lover’s manual.**
