We stayed at this Pousada for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Yes, the views from the hotel are fantastic and the basilica bells do ring all night but we were particularly impressed with the knowledge and helpfulness of the staff. We quickly became used to the hairpin bends on the drive (10 minutes) into Viana do Castelo where we found lots to see and do during our stay. We had two evening meals in the hotel making use of the set menu which was better value than most of the other Pousadas we stayed in.
All in all a good experience and a hotel which I would recommend.
- 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.
