At a glance Romantik Hotel Solar do Castelo
Crowning the heights of the Alfama district, the São Jorge Castle accommodates between its walls a typical set of houses. Between these walls is the Solar Do Castelo, the only hotel situated within the medieval Castle village.
An 18th century building, the small palace is built on the site of the former kitchens of the Royal Palace. The place of legends and the souls of princes, the doors of the palace open out onto the noble patio where the blue of the peacocks from the Castle predominates. A perfect setting for your stay as a couple to rekindle your passion in this Romantik boutique hotel.
The palace has electic features where the Pombaline inspiration prevails. The sober frames of the windows and the main gateway of Rationalist construction in no way rival the signs of
greater freedom such as the elaborate completion of the wall adjoining the gateway of the main façade. Tiles decorate the house inside and outside. Panels recount how people lived in days gone by whilst the Pombaline pattern - star/ flower/ star – and its rocaille polychromy adorn this all. The aristocratic «figure of invitation» welcomes visitors.
For your convenience we can arrange a private transfer from the airport. We have also a Golf cart that can pick you up at the castle gate. You just have to tell us when you need it.
#INSIDE THE CASTLE
Within the walls of São Jorge Castle, stands the noble Solar Do Castelo with two floors and an attic. Solar Do Castelo is also known as the Kitchen’s Mansion as it is constructed where the old kitchens of Alcaçova Palace once stood. This XVIII Century Palace, which is classified as an historic building, has several medieval remains, which likely belonged to outbuildings of the Palace, an example of which is the cistern.
