|Built in the early 19th
century the Pestana Palace Hotel has been fully restored to its former
glory. This magnifient palace is now classified as a National Monument.
It is one of the main palaces in Lisbon (Lisboa in Portuguese).
It was built in 1904 for the Marquis of Valle Flor and his three daughters. There are many portraits of the children in the Palace.
The Palace has many fine examples of the works of some the greatest artists of the period including ceiling paintings and portraits by Carlos Reis, one of the great Portuguese artists of the 19th Century.
The Palace also houses a magnificent, consecrated Chapel which has seating for 40 persons.
The conversion to luxury
accommodation, and the addition of two contemporary accommodation wings,
resulted in the Pestana Palace Hotel being awarded the international ‘MIPIM’
prize in 2002.
It is situated in the historical Alto de Santo Amaro quarter of the city and has magnificent views over the River Tagus.
The Estoril coast and its excellent south facing beaches are only a short drive away and a little further are the attractive small towns of Cascais and Sintra.
Lisbon is a fascinating capital city and its streets and monuments reflect many different periods in its history.
The Congress Centre and the
Belem Cultural Centre, which host many international exhibitions and musical
events, are also within easy reach.
