The Pousada de Viana do Castelo is located atop the Monte de Santa Luzia, in Viana do Castelo. Lofty and elegant, it further enhances the beauty of the city of Viana do Castelo. It features one of Portugal's most dazzling views of the mountain, the city, the Lima river, the Atlantic Ocean and the iconic Templo de Santa Luzia which, located just a few hundred metres from the hillside, frames and fills the landscape and the view. Inaugurated in 1921, this Pousada was born of the excellent restoration and remodelling of the Hotel de Santa Luzia, maintaining its stately features that make it so unique, such as its high granite walls and broad archways. During your stay, you can take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool and enjoy the view of the Serra de Santa Luzia, the city of Viana do Castelo, as well as the gorgeous Lima river and its mouth. If you would like to relax or rejuvenate yourself, schedule at massage at our Magic Wellness Spa. Feast on minhota cuisine at the Pousada's re

It was one of the most romantic places we've ever stayed. Perfect for special occasions, watching sunsets, gazing at the sea or just take in magnificent view of the St. Luzia. The town is quite a distance but there are options for getting there. Driving and parking or taking a

Dear marbak88, Thank you for your contact. At the moment, the golden age price is not available for the dates you´ve indicated. This is a regular rate that applies for all guests older than 55. However, it is not always available. You can check prices and special offers for these and other dates at our site. Regarding your other questions, this Pousada stays on top of Santa Luzia´s Hill, which means that the easiest way to get to the sea is by car. It takes about 15 minutes to get to the nearest beach. For parking, we have a free parking lot available. We hope you´ll find this information helpful. Best regards,
