Pathways

Photo taken in Pousada de Belmonte in Portugal, 1 January 2012. A lovely place with friendly people.

Happy New Year! Choose your Path and be Happy!

“Set on the slopes of the Esperança Mountain, at just over 1 km from the town of Belmonte, the birthplace of Pedro Álvares Cabral, the Pousada Convento de Belmonte results from the renovation of the former Nossa Senhora da Esperança Convent.Inside, the chapel and sacristy have been converted into a lounge and bar a good example of the harmonious blend of historical architecture and modern construction and comfort.The Pousada hotel has preserved the Monastery’s heritage intact (the sight was classified as a building of public interest in 1986), included amphitheatre architecture layout in the pine woods on the slopes of Esperança´s Mountain, and stunning landscape with views over the Cova da Beira region and Estrela’s  Mountain.” From http://www.pousadas.pt/historic-hotels-portugal/pt/pousadas/center-hotels/pousada-de-belmonte/convento-de-belmonte/pages/home.aspx

Caminhos – Fotografia tirada na Pousada de Belmonte, Portugal, a 1 de Janeiro de 2012. Um local lindissimo com pessoas muito simpáticas. Feliz Ano Novo! Escolham o vosso Caminho e sejam Felizes!

“Situada numa encosta da Serra da Esperança, a pouco mais de 1 km da vila de Belmonte (berço de Pedro Álvares Cabral) a Pousada de Belmonte surgiu da recuperação das ruínas do antigo Convento de Nossa Senhora da Esperança, sobre uma Ermida construída no século XIII e provavelmente sobre vestígios de antigos lugar de culto pagãos.
A Pousada preserva integralmente toda a herança histórica do convento (classificado em 1986 como imóvel de interesse público), incluindo a arquitectura em anfiteatro, entre os pinhais da Serra da Esperança e uma deslumbrante paisagem sobre a região da Cova da Beira e Serra da Estrela.” Fonte: http://www.pousadas.pt/historic-hotels-portugal/pt/pousadas/center-hotels/pousada-de-belmonte/convento-de-belmonte/pages/home.aspx
