Solar do Castelo
Solar Do Castelo – History and Passion in a Romantic Boutique Hotel in the Historic centre of Lisbon.
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 village.
An 18th century Building, the palace is built on the site of theformer kitchens of the Alcáçovas 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 serene refuge framed by the Lisbon Pombaline tilework. As in a friend's home, all the areas of Solar Do Castelo are exclusive for our guests.
The small unit comprising an attic and two storeys, a noble patio and a garden stores the traces of the memories of this place. The water tank was preserved and the museological unit of objects found during the renovation recount over eight centuries of History.
The decorative project, undertaken by Atelier Graça Viterbo, stresses the contemporary nature of the revitalization of the space whilst simultaneously stressing the medieval origins, in this Eco-Hotel.
