In an old 1842 built hospital
The Pousada de Viseu is built on the old São Teotónio Hospital, one of the oldest hospitals of the Viseu city, having opened in 1842.
The entrance to this eighteenth century majestic and impotent building is crowned by 3 statues - Faith, Hope and Charity - which look attentively over the fabulous landscape above the old city - the name given to the oldest part of the town which is located the Cathedral and the Cava Viriato.
This hotel in Viseu was a project by the Portuguese architect Goncalo Byrne and opened to the public in 2009, offering a hotel Spa at the heart of the city. The Spa is situated in the old hospital chapel and offers sauna, Jacuzzi, Turkish baths, tropical showers, gym and an indoor pool heated for better relaxation.
Coupled with the historic neoclassical structure, there is a minimalist decor with modern materials design, where comfort is a guarantee, creating a special and perfect ambience for a getaway for two.
The rooms are equipped with air conditioning, mini bar and flat screen TV.
The Master Cloister Grão Vasco, at the centre of the Pousada, is one of the ex-libris of the Pousada, covered and transformed into a bar open to the public or serving as a function room on festive occasions. On Saturday nights, you can still enjoy of unique nights at the Piano sound.
