We celebrated our wedding anniversary in this charming historic castle. The experience could not have been better. The staff went over and above the call of duty to make our stay perfect. They even added a few special extra touches. The view from our room was fantastic and all amenities were excellent. The breakfast was diverse, delicious and well served.... More

After touring empty castles throughout Portugal, I am glad we had the opportunity to actual experience what it must have been like to actually live in one with the added convenience of an ensuite bath. This one was most elegant. You can see its marble tower from the highway! Our experience at the pousada started when we first met Elsa... More

This Pousada is one of the Crown Jewels in the chain of Pousadas. This was the palace of Queen Isabel. You will feel like royalty if You stay here! The public areas are impressive, too. The views from The top of the castle tower are breath-taking.

Great location. Very good service levels. Quaint rooms with authentic period furniture. Make sure that you walk up to the tower - great views. although the hotel staff didn't point out that we could climb the tower, we found the stairs ourselves. Breakfast was the normal Portuguese offering. Good range and quality of food. Pousadas can be pretty expensive in... More

Unbelievable-a beautiful renovated castle, red carpet treatment and all. Lovely service, rooms, comfortable beds. Nothing to complain about in this beautiful historic palace with 17th (?) century furnishings. Breakfast was in a dining room that you only see in the movies. A grand, grand dining room that just goes on forever. Explore all the nooks and crannies and discover what´s... More

This Pousada is considered historical because both the public rooms and guest bedrooms are in the palace itself. (There are four categories of Pousadas - Historical, Historical Design, Charming and Nature.) Properties are owned by the government and this one is a national treasure! Through out the Pousada you will see museum quality furniture. Do take in a visit to... More

Converted from a royal palace, this property is incredible and offers spectacular views of the surroundings. I stayed with my family and we enjoyed exploring the tower and the beautiful rooms. I would recommend staying here just to get a feel for this beautiful town's history.

How much fun to stay in a castle! In the off season during the week there was only one other guest therefore it was very quiet. So much fun to explore the grounds. The service was good, the food was great and the recommendation of the tomato soup was appreciated. So different, the flavour and taste was amazing. A wonderfully... More
