Take-Off / Portugal / Lisbon

Palacio BelmonteArt

An artistic elegance floats in the corridors of the Palacio Belmonte. Built in 1449 on Roman and Moorish fortifications – some towers dating from 123 BC. J-C – the building has survived the centuries and the most devastating natural phenomena. In 1503, one of Portugal’s most famous adventurers who is credited with discovering Brazil, Pedro Alvares Cabral, added his touch to the existing house. Lately, the palace has been completely restored using 15 th and 17 th centuries techniques and raw materials that help preserve the soul of the place. We thus find magnificent blue azulejos from 1720 in rooms with coffered ceilings, designed to create natural ventilation throughout the year. Today, the places serve as a refuge for artists seeking tranquility and inspiration, and sophisticated travelers who want simple and pure luxury. With only ten suites for 3,700 square meters, everything is done here to make everyone’s privacy a priority.

In the library, some 3,500 books and letters signed by ancient kings and queens of Portugal adorn the walls. A little higher, from the roof terraces, the view seems to be lost on Alfama, the new trendy district of the capital, and further still on the ocean. Back on earth, the Belmonte Café et Patio is a place of exchange where music accompanies authors and artists who come to share their ideas. In the garden, under the orange trees, the black marble pool seems to invite us to a moment of freshness, before trying a yoga session. Everything seems to hold us back in these magical places that Marcello Mastroianni immortalized in his film “A Firma Pereira”. However difficult to resist a boat trip on the Tejo river or a guided tour of the architecture of old Lisbon. End your evening in a tasca while listening to fado.
