Pousada de Alcácer do Sal, D. Afonso II
Alcácer do Sal is one of the oldest cities in Europe, founded before 1000 BC by the Phoenicians. Alcácer do Sal and its castle was only conquered definitively during the reign of Afonso II of Portugal on 18th October 1217.
It was in this town that in 1500, D. Manuel I married the Infanta D. Maria, daughter of the Catholic kings of Spain.
In the midst of a Medieval Castle
The Pousada de Alcácer do Sal opened in 1998, is found in the medieval style castle, a hotel of truly luxurious design. This new project was drawn from the ruins of castle, with 33 rooms and 2 suites.
The Alcácer do Sal city, with over 5000 years of history, takes us to the end of the Neolith period, one of the main Atlantic costal ports in the south of the Tagus. Throughout the whole city we come across many remnants of the Phoenician, Arab and even Roman culture.
The Pousada de Alcácer do Sal has a panoramic view over the Sado River which runs through a vast green valley.
Distinguishing characters reside at Pousada which makes it very desirable.
