Pousada Castelo Estremoz

Description

The castle of Estremoz is a magnificent restored palace built in the early 14th century by King Dinis I for his wife, the saintly Queen Isabel, who died here. This impressive Pousada – which was also home to later kings and queens of Portugal – is decorated with sumptuous velvets and gilt and furnished with beautiful antiques. Many of the bedrooms have antique beds including four-posters, and the Pousada is decorated throughout with 18th and 19th century period pieces, reflecting the historical importance of the castle and its colourful past.
