  • Pousada de Viana do Castelo – Hotel Monte de Santa Luzia

    This early 20th century Pousada Viana Do Castelo offers one of the most famous views in Portugal

    Description

    Spectacular Views with the Hotel Viana Do Castelo

    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’.

    The Pousada Hotel 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.

      4 testimonials for Pousada de Viana do Castelo – Hotel Monte de Santa Luzia

      1. We visited for two nights at the end of June and thorougly enjoyed our stay. In all areas the staff were attentive and helpful. The room was complete with magnificent view,( especially in the morning when the valley was covered in mist).
        A very small point. The front desk rang me twice to ask if we were OK, on enquiring why, I was told I had pulled the assistance cord in the bathroom. I had thought this was the switch cord for the extractor fan ! At our next hotel across the border in galicia, there was a similar cord, but red and with a red ring.
        May I suggest you emergency cords are similarly coloured to save your staff concern.
        Apert from that we enjoyed our holiday especially the introduction to the area in Portugal

      2. we stayed in this pousada one night at the end of June. We recommend it as a worthwhile choice first of all for its location. We had a comfortable room with a wonderful view over the river, town and the beautiful church of Santa Luzia. Efficient and attentive staff. Don’t miss the funicular from the pousada down the mountain to the city of Viana. Not far from Viana we visited Valencia near the Spanish border and Guimaraes, both worth the drive. We had a very pleasurable stay!

      The pousada was quite beautiful, and the view from our room was just like the pictures from the website. The a.c. worked fine and the staff was friendly and helpful, and drinks on the terrace are not to be missed. The pool is a disappointment because it is at least 300 yards away from the hotel and was dirty and no one was using it. We went down to the beach instead. We enjoyed our stay very much.
