Mosteiro Santa Maria do Bouro, Lugar do Terreiro,
Amares,

Portugal,
4720-633.

This 12th-century monastery turned inn, attached to a tiny church in a village of northern Portugal’s Gerês Mountains, retains its formidable Romanesque demeanor—right down to the stylishly austere bedrooms (former monk’s cells) and their extremely firm mattresses.
