Solar Do Castelo
Solar Do Castelo is truly a Romantic Boutique hotel in the historic center of Lisbon. The only hotel within St. George-s Castle walls, at the top of Alfama, Solar Do Castelo is a small Mansion built on the site of the former Alcaçova Palace. With two floors and a mansard, an inner courtyard and garden, most part of the furniture was specially designed for the hotel in a Medieval Contemporary style. You will find welcoming rooms offering complete modern day comfort, such as free wireless access. During the second half of the XVIII century a mansion was built within St. Jorge-s Castle walls on the site of the former Alcáçova Palace kitchens. Thats why it is still known as the Palacete das Cozinhas (Kitchen Mansion). Along with two floors and a mansard, an inner courtyard and gardens, the Palacete das Cozinhas possesses some Medieval remains – such as the cistern – which are thought to have formed part of some of the original Palace-s outbuildings. The mansion combines elements of the rationalist Pombal style of building – the sober frames around the windows and the main gateway – with others that expressed a greater freedom, such as the elaborate design that surmounts the wall attached to the gateway in the main façade, on which we can read 1765 – the probable date of its construction. The mansion, which is classified as an Historic Building, has now been transformed into a hotel under the name Solar Do Castelo and has been brought back to life by a high-quality contemporary design.
