This was probably the best place we stayed on our whole trip! A true Palace, with a tower you can climb for an amazing view and authentic antique furniture. Just beautiful! A gorgeous pool, truly castle-like bar area and a lovely courtyard for drinks. The breakfast buffet was an amazing array of hot and cold foods and exotic juices -... More

This is an amazing place, filled with antique furnishings,art, and just oozes history. The public areas are impressive. Our room in pcontrast was fine but just simply furnished, typical of the pousadas we have stayed in.

The staff welcome was a good sign - we were slightly early and so the room was not ready so we went for a walk into town. Fine on the way down but thankfully there are taxis to bring people back up the hill to the castle. The rooms are very luxurious - we had twin four poster beds -... More

This was a unique and wonderful experience for us staying in this lovely castle. We got a triple room for my husband and I and our son, which is basically two canopy beds and a rollaway bed. It was a little small, but worked out well for us and the size was a small sacrifice for such surroundings. Even though... 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 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.
