History is uniquely layered in this 60-room hotel, where Roman remains are interwoven with the palace’s 17th-century chapter as home to the Governors of the Tower of Belém. Conversion work includes a contemporary twist, while paying homage to Portugal’s rich cultural past.

Palacio do Governador 5*

Built on the site of the former house of the governor of the Tower of Belém, exquisitely restored, on top of roman ruins probably from the 1st to the 5th century, the Palácio do Governador is a palatial building with a reception that once was a chapel, a restaurant with original domes as ceilings and contemporary SPA that’s linked to the ancient thermal traditions of Mediterranean cultures. Close to the Tagus and national historic monuments, the Palácio do Governador is the place to be!

The lobby reception is located in a former Chapel, with walls and restored original tiles, leather wood and double ceiling height. The genuine historic and architectural value is revealed in each of the five floors of the hotel: on the vaulted ceilings of the restaurant room, on the successive arches of the ground floor rooms and on the wainscoting tiles in the living rooms and suites. The balconies facing south offer the guests and visitors a privileged terrace overlooking the outdoor pool, the Belém Tower and the Tagus river.

The 16th century palace has been transformed into a plush hotel that smartly combines creature comforts and contemporary design while preserving and displaying historical elements.
