Your Destination

This 4* hotel is situated right above the village’s marina, among palm trees and charming plazas.

This luxury Pousada hotel is close to the centre of Cascais, beaches, shoppings, parks and museums.

Not so far away is the Casino at Estoril, the surfer's paradise at Guincho, and of course Portugal's capital city, Lisbon. Lisbon is an illuminated city with a strong soul and essence that combines history with the latest trends. It has now become a favourite city for trendsetters and food lovers.

Some nearby highlights include:

  • National Palace of Pena
  • National Palace of Sintra

  • Toy Museum
  • Convent of Mafra
  • Roca Cape

Your Hotel

A beacon of a bygone era, the emblematic 16th century Citadel of Cascais is home to the new Pestana Cidadela Cascais – Pousada & Art District. After painstaking restoration of the old fortress, this project embraces a new generation of Pousadas bigger in size and with outstanding architectural heritage.

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.
