Pousada de Cascais - Cidadela Historic Hotel & Art District

Lisbon, Portugal


Pousada de Cascais - Cidadela Historic Hotel & Art District

The Pousada de Cascais is set within the walls of the historical fortress of Citadel of Cascais.

Elected by Condé Nast Traveller as ‘Hot Property’ and recommended by the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal, this luxurious hotel, the Pousada de Cascais, Cidadela Historic Hotel & Art District, is set within the walls of the historical fortress of the emblematic 16th century Citadel of Cascais, in the centre of Cascais.
It is a unique place where ancient meets modern and some of the rooms are dramatically set into the former barracks, while others, more modern, enjoy spectacular views to the sea or over the interior plazas, turning each stay into a unique experience.
The Pousada de Cascais - Cidadela Historic Hotel& Art District, is a world in itself with restaurants, bars, indoor pool, wellness centre, business centre and ample meeting and conference facilities and now includes an Art District, turning it into the first hotel in Europe with a project of this nature.

It goes without saying that all the rooms have air conditioning, multi channel Lcd televisions, wi-fi, safes, bathrobes and many other comforts.
The Pousada is close to the centre of Cascais, beaches, shopping areas, parks and museums.
Not so far away is the Casino at Estoril, the surfer’s paradise at Guincho, and of course Portugal’s capital city, Lisbon.
The Pousada de Cascais is a member of "The Leading Hotels of the World", a symbol that ranks the Pousada amongst the most luxurious hotels in the world.
The striking new Pousada is the creation of architects Gonçalo Byrne and David Sinclair while strictly committed to the goal to preserve and respect environmental sustainability, the heritage value of the site and the natural beauty of its surroundings.

The Taberna da Praça restaurant in Praça das Armas square, serves typical Portuguese cuisine snacks made with national products.

Taberna da Praça

The Taberna da Praça restaurant in Praça das Armas square, serves typical Portuguese cuisine snacks made with national products.
Appetizers are one of the most wholesome traditions of the Portuguese society.
At gatherings, in taverns or in the gardens, always sitting around a table, is one of the healthiest ways to live and talk. This is a concept that promotes Portuguese regional cuisine, their traditional recipes, served in small doses, in tasting sessions which revisit our gustatory memory and comply with the seasons and time.
If it is at the table that one does not age, then in the Taberna da Praça snack the most authentic there is in Portugal, in an informal environment where everyone can eat and feel good. The Square Tavern aims, above all, to rehabilitate the Tertullian and bohemian spirit of the Portuguese people.
We all like to go out for a drink, have a snack, be with our friends and talk about life, in a friendly, relaxed and unpretentious environment.
Nº of seats in the restaurant: 202
Restaurant opening hours:
Sunday to Thursday: 7:30pm - 10:30pm
Friday, Saturday and holiday eves: 12:00pm - 11:00pm

Lobby Bar

The 600 swallows of Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro transform the room into a unique atmosphere, comfortable and relaxing. Small meals (snacks) are served with the touch of Chef Manuel Alexandre.
See the Bar Menu.
Hours: from 5pm to 1am.
Chef Manuel Alexandre: Graduated in kitchen in Germany (Freiburg) in 1988, went through several luxury hotels all over the world (Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, France, Spain, Cuba and Dominican Republic). He returned to Portugal in 2001 where he assumed the leadership of several 5 star hotels. It is currently the Executive Chef at the Pousada de Cascais, Pestana Cascais, Pestana Sintra and Pousada de Queluz.

Maris Stella

The view over the marina of Cascais, the proximity to the sea gives the tone for a menu that breathes freshness. The variety of fish, the Mediterranean-style snacks, fruit options and desserts are the main elements of the menu and the starting point for a trip with a sea breeze ‘taste’.
See the Maris Stella Menu.
Nº of seats in the restaurant: 36 in the interior and 32 in the exterior
Restaurant hours: From 11h30am to 6pm.


I Scream For is much more than an ice cream, it is the screaming for a splash of sensations that range from a single ice cream, to a slice of cake, whose recipe has been locked with seven keys for generations.
A fresh and welcoming décor, with ice creams really tasting of fruit and other sweet little surprises: the creation of bold harmonies between the conventional Portuguese sweets and ice creams, which are always based on the recipe of conventional Portuguese sweets, which the Pousadas of Portugal are their faithful entrustee.
In the teas: a special emphasis on infusions & quality teas, exploring the rich tradition of tea in Portugal: it was Catherine of Braganza who introduced tea to the English court.
