Pousada Castelo Alcácer Do Sal

Description

The historic town of Alcácer do Sal, 90 km southeast of Lisbon, is dominated by the Moorish citadel (Arabic al qasr) that gives the town its name and which now houses a magnificent Pousada. The hotel retains the castellated walls and towers of the original structure and stands on a site that has been occupied since Neolithic times overlooking the broad green valley of the River Sado. After the Reconquista, the building housed a convent, of which the elegant cloister remains, but today the keynote is luxury and tasteful modern touches in both art and woodwork complement areas of rough ancient stonework, oriental rugs and Baroque coats of arms. The Pousada also has a small garden and a dining terrace. The addition of the large outdoor pool and sunbathing area makes this Pousada the perfect spot to relax and absorb the incredible scenery.

The Pousada is located on the coast, in the ancient town of Alcácer do Sal, situated 90 km south of Lisbon. Alcácer do Sal Train Station is 2.8 km away, and Setúbal is a 40-minute drive away.
