This building has been beautifully restored, and is quite spectacular. We loved it. The staff are very friendly. Our 4th floor room was massive, with its own private deck and a really great view over the city.
The restaurant is well worthwhile. My only criticism is that the servings are if anything too generous.
We hope to be back.

The peace and tranquility is only shattered by the chimes from a local church on the hour and half-hour, birdsong and people chatting. Although Dutch-owned, the site is managed by a lovely couple - Lidia and Jorge - who supplied us with a welcome drink at the bar and ...
... scenes of the stations of the cross and tributes to the Blessed Virgin, A month of festival celebrations that include torchlight processions, a fair and concerts ends on 8th of September. Hundreds of pilgrims climb the staircase to Nosse Senhora dos Remedios for favors from Mary. Many annual pilgrims crawl on their knees all 686 steps. (Hope they were knee pads).
The four of us decided to take the bus to the top of the hill and walk down the ...
... it on a viaduct. We get good views of the vine terraces lining the banks. We arrive in Viseu and park up to have a look round and something to eat before checking in. We have a frustrating encounter with a parking ticket machine which is not working but eventually find another one. Its sunny now and hot but nothing like yesterday - maybe 28 degrees. There isn't ...
