The Pousada Palmela  (official name Pousada Castelo de Palmela) has the most incredible panoramic views that any imagination could want. Hours can pass by filling the eyes and the spirit with the unforgettable views from the hilltop castle Pousada.

The Palmela castle-convent, founded by the Knights of Santiago, was classified as a National Monument on the 16th June 1919 and reconstruction began in the years shortly after. Again in 1940 there were more restorative works, and in 1979 the Pousada was inaugurated.

The interior is in an austere style. One enters through the cloister, and then on to the public areas, and social spaces of the Pousada. The bedrooms are very comfortable, ample, and all have wonderful views.

Part of the old Santa Maria church, though it was destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, is still preserved within the castle walls.

The Palmela village is said to have been founded in 310 B.C.. Palmela seems to be a derivative form of “palma”, a Latin word that means palm tree leaf - or victory.  It was in Moorish hands for many centuries, then abandoned by the them to become a Christian possession. Built in a privileged location, the Palmela Castle is a key point between the Sado and Tejo´s basin and was one pf the parts of the defensive triangle of Lisbon.

Palmela boasts excellent wines and superb cuisine, and it is also the perfect starting place to discover the Costa Azul and the magnificent Arrábida Natural Park.
