Pousada Santa Marinha - Guimarães
This stunning Hotel Guimaraes was awarded the coveted Europa Nostra prize for its renovation and restoration. It has retained the character and majesty of its former use as a 12th century Augustinian monastery whilst providing luxury accommodation with all modern conveniences. This Pousada is generally considered one of the best in the Pousadas of Portugal Group.
In prime position overlooking the town of Guimaraes the Hotel Santa Marinha combines luxury with Portuguese history and culture. Guests can explore the lake, formal garden, cloisters, grotto and granite fountains. The Pousada Guimaraes also features the famous Portuguese azulejos (tiles) in abundance, some dating back to 1747.
The town of Guimaraes, known as the ‘the cradle of the Nation’, was Portugal’s first capital city and the birthplace of the first King of Portugal, Afonso Henriques. It is steeped in history dating as far back as the 10th century, making it one of the most popular destinations for tourists in Northern Portugal. The medieval town centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and was the 2012 European Capital of Culture. Approximately 9 kms from Guimaraes is the Celtic settlement, Citania de Briteiros, which was occupied from 400 BC and consists of over 150 dwellings.
