Palácio da Lousã
Portugal - Beiras - Lousã

In a refurbished palace, recall memories of past times with the comfort of today.

Located in the village of Lousã, in the centre of Portugal and harboured in a 18th century building qualified as historical heritage, the former Palace of the Salazares is today a classic and sophisticated hotel, the Palácio da Lousã.

Built by Bernardo Salazar, the palace remained the property of his family until 1893 when it was purchased by João Antunes dos Santos, native to Lousã. Some of his descendents are today the hotel’s proprietors.

Its history includes episodes from the French Invasions, a period during which it lodged French troops as well as Portuguese and English ones. To preserve the memories of the past, as well as the palace’s character, the process of creating the hotel was carefully thought out to ensure a customized experience with modern comforts in historical surroundings.

The architectural details from that epoch are still present, as well as the doors and wainscotting, the ceilings and stucco, the staircase at the entrance and the frescoes in the living room. The decor of the lounges and rooms of the palace is distinctively classical, emphasising refinement and tradition. The design in the new wing, adjacent to the garden, is contemporary and relaxed in a minimalist spirit.

Once outside the hotel set out to discover the Lousã mountain, which can be seen in the distance, as you practice adventure sports, hike or enjoy swimming in the river. The region is also rich in museums and monuments which suggest enticing cultural excursions to Coimbra and the famous Roman ruins of Conímbriga.
