Pousada Cascais - Exterior Pousada Cidadela Historic Hotel and Art District Pousada Cascais Cidadela Historic Hotel and Art District


This luxury Pousada Hotel is located in the lively coastal town of Cascais near Lisbon, Portugal’s vibrant capital city

The Pousada of Cascais opened in Spring 2012 and is set within the walls of the 16th century Citadel in the centre of this delightful coastal town. The Citadel and the inner Fortress of Our Lady of Light (Nossa Senhora da Luz) were used between the 15th and 17th centuries for defending the Portuguese coast and the mouth of the River Tagus from French, English and Arab pirates. In the 19th century the Citadel was the summer residence of the royal family.

This beautifully restored Hotel in Cascais perfectly combines the ancient with modern. With its sea views, swimming pool, luxury spa, central location and proximity to the capital it is a perfect base from which to discover the superb Lisbon coast of Portugal.

The Hotel Fortaleza Da Cidadel, in the Lisbon area, has 126 rooms, including 18 suites. Many of the rooms are located in the former military barracks. Others, more modern, enjoy spectacular views to the sea or over the large internal courtyards. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, free internet access, minibar, hairdryer, safe, telephone and cable TV.

The Pousada Cascais is situated in the centre of the cosmopolitan coastal town famous for its beaches, restaurants and elegant shops.

Room outlook poor. No ventilation when showering. Elevator out of order. Breakfast room often overcrowded,but food good.

Comment posted by Alan Markham
Excellent stay for three days. Enjoyed it immensely. I can only re-iterate the comments from other guests as above. I would agree about the late maid service and maybe that can be addressed. We wanted to dine in the separate restaurant on the opposite side of the courtyard but they couldn't fit us in ( everyone stayed at the hotel that evening because it was too wet to go out !) which was a shame . WE would have liked to have dined there. All in all, it was a nice experience and we loved Cascais , particularly the cultural aspects of the town. Best wishes

Could not fault our stay here. Best points are the amazing staff, who were polite, enthusiastic and welcoming at all times together with the location in beautiful Cascais. We would return.
