Pousada Valença


Set on the highest point of the old fortified area of Valença, overlooking the Portuguese/Spanish border, this modern Pousada enjoys magnificent views over Spain, the peaceful River Minho and the historic village walls. You enter the fort through crenellated gates and narrow cobbled streets, often lively with stalls and tourists. The hotel has a bar and an excellent panoramic restaurant serving traditional dishes of the Minho region. The Pousada is modern and comfortable and is situated towards the far end in a haven of peace and quiet.

How To Arrive

Just 30 minutes away, Vigo is the most convenient airport with Porto and Santiago being reasonably close too. The Pousada is just 2 km from Valença railway station.


This Pousada is within the fortified walls of Valença on the Spanish- Portuguese border. It is equidistant to Porto in the south and Santiago de Compostela in Spain in the north. Apart from the fact that Valença is not far from the coast and near some excellent golf courses, it is also within easy reach of the Peneda-Geres National Park.
