Pousada Condeixa, Coimbra

Description

This 16th-century palace, which originally belonged to the Almadas family, was converted first into an inn in the 19th century, then into an orphanage and then a retirement home. Now the palace has been completely rebuilt and turned into a beautiful, spacious Pousada. Just 2 km from the charming little town of Condeixa-a-Nova, one of the great attractions of Pousada Santa Cristina is its proximity to Conimbriga, one of the best preserved Roman settlements in Portugal, notable for its city walls and mosaic floors. The Pousada is attractively designed so the rooms overlook a beautiful, lush garden, dotted with pretty lemon trees and an outdoor pool.

How To Arrive

The Pousada is situated in the small town of Condeixa-a-Nova, 12 km from Coimbra and almost half way between Lisbon and Porto.

Location

Located in the town of Condeixa-a-Nova, about half way between Lisbon (1h 40mins to the south) and Porto (1hr 30 mins to the north). This Pousada is also only a 15min drive from the historic university city of City of Coimbra. The seaside town of Figueira da Foz is 40 minutes drive.
