We stayed at the pousada at the end of June during a very hot spell and found the whole place fantastic. We had a third floor suite with a balcony looking out over the basilica and the town, and then down the coast - a fantastic view, and we understand that National Geographic puts it in the 10 best views in the world. The hotel was very comfortable (the air conditioning was just up to the very hot weather) and the staff were very helpful and friendly. We would recommend this hotel very strongly to anyone visiting this area.
- 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.
