Pousada De Viseu

Top choice hotel in Viseu
Image by Booking.com

This superbly refashioned pousada set in a monumental 19th-century hospital is a top luxury option. The original three floors, all with ridiculously high ceilings and spacious modern rooms, have been enhanced with a 4th floor dedicated to superior rooms with panoramic terraces. The enormous central courtyard, with bar, is a neoclassical delight, while the elegant former pharmacy has been converted into a cosy lounge.

Indoor and outdoor pools, plus a gym and spa complex, complete the picture. Excellent value.
