The old Convento das Servas, in Borba near the border with Spain, is going to be transformed into a 5-star hotel, in a €10 million investment, the developers said on Tuesday.

The Aureum Group’s real estate consultant, Paulo Borges, told Lusa News Agency that the convent had been bought to be converted into a hotel.

“We are very interested in investing in Borba in this project that involves a component connected with the wine that is made nearby”, the company added.

Borges told Lusa that the idea was to keep the original lines of the 17th-century building and refurbish the inside, which was in a “very poor state of repair”.
