Lonely Planet review
A whimsical, late-19th-century, pseudo-Gothic castle, this fabulously over-the-top hideaway has palm-shaded, azulejo -smothered gardens complete with its own chapel. Choose between more elegant, period-furnished doubles in the castle and smaller rooms in a modern annexe. Reserve well in advance.
Our independent authors have visited Castelo Santa Catarina and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Porto.
