Appreciate the architecture, admire the view and witness the attentive service.
On the Northern margin of the Douro River, in the city of Oporto rises the Freixo Palace, an important national monument from the 18th century built by Nasoni, famous Italian architect at the time, and a magnificent example of the Portuguese civil Baroque architecture.
Since it was commissioned by the Dean of Porto’s Cathedral, this palace was a private residence, then a mill factory around the 20th century and more recently it was purchased by the State for the creation of a professional training center. Now, with a renovated interior and preserved historic façade, it receives us as a surprising charming hotel.
Today the palace receives the restaurant and bar, the living rooms and the ideal spaces for meetings and varied corporate or private events.
The old mill factory building lodges the rooms and suites, that benefit from a superb view over the river, and also the SPA equipped with a gymnasium, Turkish bath, sauna and massage rooms.
If you are going to visit the city of Oporto, take advantage to discover the riverside, stroll through the city park, appreciate the exhibitions of the Serralves Foundation and the concerts of the House of Music, and book a different stay in the refined environment of the Pestana Palácio do Freixo - Pousada & National Monument.
