The Hotel Viana Do Castelo
, set high on Mount Santa Luzia, combines early 20th century elegance with spectacular views over the old sailing port of Viana do Castelo
and Portugal's Atlantic coast with its long sweep of sandy beaches. The view from the Pousada, with the temple of Santa Luzia in the foreground, is one of the most famous in Portugal.
The National Geographic magazine wrote 'Santa Luzia is blessed with one of the world's finest panoramas, perhaps bettered only by those of Funchal and Rio de Janeiro, both in Portuguese speaking countries'.
This beautifully furnished Hotel Monte De Santa Luzia has a number of interesting artefacts commemorating the Roman invasion of Portugal. The Pousada is also surrounded by the remains of an old Celtic village inhabited from around 2000 BC to 500 AD, shortly after the Roman invasion.
This Pousada Viana Do Castelo has excellent facilities including a palatial lounge area, elegant bar and excellent restaurant serving gourmet regional and international cuisine, all flanked by a large terrace which benefits from wonderful views of Santa Luzia and the town beyond.
The Hotel Viana Do Castelo has 51 rooms, including 32 superior rooms and 3 suites. All bedrooms have en-suite bathroom, heating/air conditioning, minibar, telephone, Cable TV, hairdryer, safe and internet access.
