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, outdoor and 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.
