Pousada Estremoz - Exterior Pousada Rainha Santa Isabel Pousada Estremoz Rainha Santa Isabel


The magnificent Pousada of Estremoz is set in a 14th century Castle which has been home to many of Portugal’s royal families throughout the ages

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.

The Pousada Estremoz is one of the most luxurious in the group and guests cannot fail to be intrigued by its history.

This Hotel in Estremoz has 33 rooms, including 3 superior rooms and 1 royal suite. Many of the bedrooms have four poster beds. All rooms have en-suite bathroom, heating/air conditioning, minibar, bathrobes, hairdryer, desk, safe, telephone, Cable TV and internet access.

The Pousada of Estremoz was the first of 5 different pousadas we visited. What an experience! It's location to start with on the top of a hill, so you have a marvelous view. It is a very beautiful castle that has been restored impecably so it has become not only a very beautiful historical site, but a very comfortable hotel as well. Staff was great from beginning to end (reception, bar, restaurant). And ... great qualitly of food. Very recommendable!

My husband and I planned a pousada tour in Oct. "14 which included your pousada, probably our favorite. It was an elegant setting, furnishings to match, service was fantastic as was the food. Walking to town was easy, driving there and back was not as easy but doable. From Estremoz to Villa Vicosa was a great side-trip, so much to see there. We had lunch in the pousada there which was excellent and a delight to see. Altogether we stayed in four pousadas, ate in two...what a trip! Thanks Portugal.

We are Spaniards, and we really love Portugal. The Pousada overcame our expectations. A really charming place for those who love history. It was as if the time had stopped in the middle of the XVIth or XVIIth century. The service was excellent. The room was clean, wide and very comfortable. To be honest, we did not find a single drawback. Congratulations!!!
