Palacio Belmonte

Lisbon, Portugal

Palacio Belmonte is perched on the walls of the Castle at the top of the hill facing the river Tagus, the city and Lisbon's landmark 24th of April Bridge. The Palacio offers 10 suites, all different, all unique, some with terraces, winter garden or built in a roman tower with 360º view or in a Muslim one on top of a 40 meters high rock , all equipped with fully modern bathrooms, natural ventilation, a Mediterranean garden and black marble swimming pool to relax, read or dream. The Belmonte is the most veiled secret in Lisbon, there is no crowd, no noise, no chocolate on the pillow, no television, just fresh air, space, light and music.
