Solar do Castelo

Quietly tucked within the walls of the Castelo de Sao Jorge, the Solar do Castelo is housed in a lemon-yellow, 18th-century mansion done in the Pombaline style. The 14 rooms, designed by Graca Viterbo, are done with cream-colored walls, wood floors, and medieval-contemporary furniture, such as fabric panel headboards and wrought iron seats. Most rooms overlook the Moor-inspired courtyard with its tiled gateway, shallow pool, and cobbestones. There is also a lounge with exposed stone walls and a small museum that contains artifacts recovered during the construction of the hotel, including a medieval cistern.
