Choose Pousada do Mondego, a romantic Portuguese-style property in the centre of colonial masterpiece Ouro Preto.

You won’t find more elegantly romantic accommodation in Ouro Preto, which is famed for its undisturbed, baroque colonial architecture. Situated right in the heart of town, just a block uphill from the main square and overlooking the church of São Francisco de Assis this mid-range restored mansion oozes references to the city’s bygone era of opulence and affluence with shiny hardwood floors, lofty beamed ceilings, cosy rugs and antiques.

Pousada do Mondego’s been run by the same welcoming family for over 30 years, bringing a touch of homeliness to this small property. Enjoy great views over town from most of the 24 guest rooms and suites and the breakfast room. Step outside, and you are immediately thrown back in time to the exquisite Ouro Preto of Portuguese ascendancy.
