Between the beautiful Serra dos Candeeiros and about 3 km from the historic city of Alcobaça, was born in 2013 the Royal Abbey Congress & Spa, a 4-star eco-hotel, awarded with the Green Key, thought and built thinking about the Environment and its guests.
Aware of the importance of good environmental practices, the Royal Abbey Congress & Spa, holder of the Green Key Award and with the European Ecological Label, develops measures to preserve the environment of the region where it operates. In addition to reducing energy consumption, optimizing resources and managing packaging waste, food oils used by a certified company are also collected.
The restaurant, with a view to nature, offers a kitchen based on local products, giving preference to seasonal products. Here the apple and the conventual sweets are kings and masters in such a rich and tasty menu.
