Located high on the hill overlooking the town and the cathedral this hotel is very well positioned. Although some of the decor is still somewhat "dated" (bearing in mind it was inaugurated in 1918) this hotel has charm and the staff are both friendly and professional. We had dinner at the restaurant and found it to be very good.
Sitting out on the veranda (it seems quite inadequate to call it that) was simply stunning. As we were not staying in the high season we found the rates very competitive (as they were in all the Pausada's we stayed at)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Pousada de Viana do Castelo is located atop the Monte de Santa Luzia, in Viana do Castelo. Lofty and elegant, it further enhances the beauty of the city of Viana do Castelo. It features one of Portugal's most dazzling views of the mountain, the city, the Lima river, the Atlantic Ocean and the iconic Templo de Santa Luzia which, located just a few hundred metres from the hillside, frames and fills the landscape and the view. Inaugurated in 1921, this Pousada was born of the excellent restoration and remodelling of the Hotel de Santa Luzia, maintaining its stately features that make it so unique, such as its high granite walls and broad archways. During your stay, you can take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool and enjoy the view of the Serra de Santa Luzia, the city of Viana do Castelo, as well as the gorgeous Lima river and its mouth.
