Pousada Serra Da Estrela


A top the entrance to this majestic, imposing 18th Century building, three statues: Faith, Hope and Charity, stand looking attentively out over the rich architectural heritage of the old city whose name is derived from the Roman term "viso", meaning a good view. Viseu offers its visitors some quite magnificent panoramic views from its highest point where the original settlement was formed in Roman times. The Pousada da Serra da Estrela in Covilha opened its doors in April 2014. This Pousada is housed in a sanatorium built in the 1930s in a smart, distinctive style. Meals are served in an elegant restaurant with granite columns and arched windows.
