About the Pousadas

Unique Places, a special Experience

The Pousadas of Portugal had their origin in the 40's, when the first Regional Pousadas were built to provide visitors with board and accommodation in keeping with the style and traditions of each region. In the fifties a new concept of a Pousada was created; The Historic Pousadas located in carefully restored monuments.


Pousadas are a visitor’s option with an uniqueness that keeps the flame of Portuguese hospitality alight. Situated in castles, monasteries, fortresses and places of special natural beauty from the North to the South and in the islands, the Pousadas of Portugal are real treasures of our History.

Visit Us

Portugal is a country packed with the great city excitement, sleepy villages of whitewashed walls and red tiled roofs, medieval walled cities, green mountains and valleys of the north, sunny beaches in the south, hill topped palaces and castles and several UNESCO World Heritage sites. Be sure to try the tasty Portuguese cuisine and excellent wines. With an excellent climate, Portugal is a year round destination. The Azores and islands, located in the Atlantic Ocean, are thought by many to be the Lost Continent of Atlantis. Certainly they seem lost in time from the rest of Europe. The virgin scenery will amaze you and the small villages, were lifestyles have changed little in generations, will charm you, while offshore the ocean stems with whales and dolphins.
