Your Hotel —
The striking new Pousada hotel is the daring creation of architects Goncalo Byrne and David Sinclair while committed to the goal of preserving and respecting the environmental sustainability, the heritage value of the site and the natural beauty of the surroundings.
Boasting Condé Nast Traveller listed 'Hot Property' and listed in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal, as well as a long list of excellent customer reviews, this hotel is the sure to delight you!
It is a unique place where ancient meets modern and some of the rooms are dramatically set into the former barracks, while others, more modern, enjoy spectacular views to the sea or over the interior plazas, turning each stay into a unique experience.
The Pestana Cidadela Cascais – Pousada & Art District is a world in itself with restaurants, bars, outdoor and indoor pool and wellness centre, and now includes an Art District, turning it into the first hotel in Europe with a project of this nature.
