Built in 1590 on the order of King Filipe I of Portugal (Filipe II of Spain) the Pousada of Setubal
offers magnificent views of the city below, the Sado River estuary and the Arrabida National Park.
The fortress’ four centuries of history have been beautifully incorporated in the renovation of this Hotel in Setubal. It offers a tranquil, historic but luxurious base for anyone wanting to explore this area of Portugal. The Pousada’s stunning Baroque Chapel is lined with azulejos (tiles) which depict the life of King Filipe.
The intimate Pousada Setubal has 16 rooms, including 7 superior rooms and 1 suite. All rooms have air conditioning/heating, minibar, bathrobes, hairdryer, safe, telephone, cable TV and internet access.
Setubal, which is approximately 50 kms from Lisbon, is an industrious fishing town with a beautiful old town centre. Its striking 15th century Gothic-Manueline Church of Jesus is recognised as the earliest example of Manueline architecture in Portugal and it was described by Hans Christian Andersen as 'one of the most beautiful small churches I have ever seen'. Setubal is also well located for exploring the Troia Peninsula and the Arrabida Natural Park.
This Hotel Setubal is accessed by steep stone steps and is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties.
The Pousada in Setubal will be closed from 1 November 2014.
