Alcácer do Sal has a magnificent feature: you're always on your way to somewhere. On the way to the
interior of Alentejo; on the way to the
Algarve; on the way to
Lisbon; on the way to
Comporta... its centrality and
easy access make your stay in Alcácer much broader than the walls that surround the Pousada.
Ask for suggestions at the front desk: you can
Comporta, visit a
pine nut factory and even visit the wood plank port of Carrasqueira. Or you can go to the
pool, go to the
bar or go for a stroll in the
garden. Whatever you do will be determined by your will to explore. With
free premium internet access in the public areas, you can even travel without leaving the
fireplace room in the winter or the
terrace in the cloisters when it's summer.
Be sure to visit the
archaeological crypt, where you will find traces of the major civilizations that have occupied the place where you will rest. If you want to pick up some typical regional souvenirs, at the Pousada reception you'll find the wonderful
oil as well
as cork products, one of the main local industries.
