Localized in the Port wine region of Vale do Douro

The Pousada Palacete Alijó - Douro has deepened its connection with Douro and its history of the oldest noted and regulated region in the world, offering an experience which will take the visitor back to the time and place of the Baron of Forrester.Whether in the rooms or the restaurant, each space tells a different story about Douro.

This is the only Portuguese Pousada in the Douro Region. Its name is homage to Joseph James Forrester, an English Businessman, who was rooted in Portugal during the XIX century, who, in 1855 received the title of Baron from King Fernando II, for his dedication to the state and the value he gave to Douro and the Port wine.

After works for reclassification, the Pousada was given a more contemporary environment, whilst still maintaining its Douro roots visible in every little detail.

We would like to inform you that the Alijó festival will be held on 19 and 20 July. The festivities include live music, DJs, bands and a food and drink area. The party area is adjacent to the Pousada and as this type of open-air party tends to go on until quite late, it can cause some disturbance due to the noise that can be heard here, which can be a nuisance for those who are staying. For those who like this type of event, you'll be within walking distance of the venue.
