It's an amazing place, adjacent to the Mines which, in part, funded the building of the original manor house from which the hotel was converted...as it was the C19th owners home. Great conversion, excellent public spaces and huge bedrooms
Visited the mine and the Tapa grande and pequno, pity no kayaking on the reservoir in October even though the weather was perfect. Lots of places to visit in short distance drive. Pomaro the port on guadiana where the ore was exported was v picturesque.
Unfortunately it was too hot for us to do too much this visit, but there are plenty of walks, the lake is stunning and there are various museums to visit so we will go back. However, not too much in the town itself, a couple of bars and cafes but no retaurants or shops.
Minas de São Domingos is a lovely place in the south of Alentejo region. You can enjoy several activities on the lake, such as swimming, canoeing or fishing. It's also a nice place for biking or walking in a natural environment. Besides, one can also taste the great products from the Alentejo region, such as honey, sausages, bread, wine, etc.
The area was very interesting historically although the signs were so environmentally friendly they were not easy to spot! It would have been a help if the leaflets about the area were in English. The barragem was beautiful and the beach, car park, play area and cafe tastefully done. The hotel was the Mansion House for the mine owners but the hotel does not have any information available on its history, which is a shame. It was fascinating walking and driving along many of the winding streets of almost identical miners cottages, and we enjoyed the drive past all the mine workings along the route of the mineral railway, but the section at the end was too stony to risk driving further. There was a strange beauty in all the colours of the ore, tailing heaps and in the water, reflecting the commerce of bygone times. The mine workers cottage is a gem. There were also some unusual birds and types of vegetation. There were at least two good restaurants reasonably priced as well as other small bars and cafes, a fruit and veg market, school, post office, exhibition/cine hall and some unexpected small shops, not forgetting a magnificent modern church with a working, chiming clock. Unfortunately we were only able to view it from the outside.
Great staff, excellent food and great value for meals with good local wine recommendations, very pleasant gardens
