The Castle of Estremoz, now the luxury Hotel Estremoz
, was built on the order of King Dinis I of Portugal for his wife, Queen Isabel. Since the 14th century the castle has housed many of Portugal’s subsequent Kings and Queens and has played a constant role in major events in Portuguese history. It was from this castle that Vasco de Gama set out for India, becoming the first European to reach India by sea and, in the 19th century, it was a target for Napoleonic forces.
The Pousada of Estremoz’s sumptuous decor features silks and velvet fabric and many antiques which reflect the building’s historical importance and fascinating past.
Situated in the centre of Estremoz Hotel Rainha Santa Isabel has discreet modern conveniences which enhance the castle’s period features. The Pousada has an outdoor swimming pool which is surrounded by the castle’s battlements, an outdoor courtyard and private gardens from which to enjoy panoramic views over the Alentejan plains.
