IV Luso-Brazilian Finance Meeting - Évora

March 26-28, 2010

 

Venue of the Meeting: Mar D'Ar Muralhas

THE HOTEL M`AR De AR Muralhas is located right in the historic centre of Évora, a 5 minutes walk from the famous Giraldo Square, hub of this magnificent city and capital of the kingdom during the first years of the XVI century.

With this privileged location the hotel benefits from an ample garden framed by the historic city wall, which gives the area an atmosphere of remarkable beauty, in particular at sunset. The swimming pool also takes advantage of this unique scenario, as well as the bar esplanade where you can enjoy the peace of the Alentejo nights under the natural planetarium above your head.

This surprising hotel offers 85 double rooms and 6 suites, 4 contiguous meeting rooms with movable dividers hosting up to 250 people, and the restaurant "Sabores do Alentejo" where one can taste the local gastronomy under the signature of Chef António Nobre.
