As a regular costumer of Pousadas de Portugal, I need to say that this is one of the top 3 in Portugal! The view is considered by National Geographic as one of the most impressive panorama views ever! The food is amazing, as well as all the service. The park is free. This is an old hotel, from 1920, and...

We stayed here as part of a lovely Titan Tour of Northern Portugal. When we arrived & stepped into the lobby, the first thing we saw was a huge picture window with a view of the beautiful basilica set on the hill. We then went to our room to find that same view. It was amazing & definitely a 'Wow'...

My husband and I spent 3 nights at this gorgeous hotel as part of an escorted tour. The hotel is beautiful and the views second to none. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who all spoke English. The food was very good and the whole experience left us wanting to come back another time.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Pousada de Viana do Castelo, Santa Luzia, built in 1918, is fruit of the remodelling of the old Santa Luzia Hotel, maintaining the impressive characteristics which set it apart with the high majestic granite walls and the wide archways. A few hundred metres from the city stands the Mount Santa Luzia, dominating the metropolis and the Lima estuary up to the Atlantic, where our eyes are fed by the luxurious panorama. There lies the Pousada de Viana do Castelo, offering its guests from the moment they arrive, a magnificent view of the city which according to history has been occupied since the remote Mesolithic times; testimonies state numerous archaeological findings from the pre-Roman citadel. Viana do Castelo offers a superb panoramic view. It's a tourist city for its excellence, where perfect harmony of progress and wealth meet, a true living museum of ethnography and folklore. The heritage of Minho has a unique richness, with striking landscapes, churches, convents and beautiful palaces. The feast in honour of Our Lady of Agony, which runs from the 17th through to the 20th of August, stands out as the most colourful of Portugal. Classic and refined, the Pousada de Viana do Castelo exalts luxury in every detail and depth, which will surely make a memorable experience. ... more   less
