The history of Lisbon itself is present in Palacio Belmonte: it has walls built during the Roman and Muslim occupations and 59 azulejos panels from 1725, and the main building was built in 1449. The hotel is located in the shadow of Castelo Sao Jorge and overlooks the old town and the water below. Each of the 11 suites is individually decorated with 17th and 18th century antiques and paintings, Moorish touches such as latticed windows, Japanese and African artifacts, and modern art. The outdoor garden is filled with orange trees and a black marble pool.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
