A true Palace in the best and finest tradition of the great European hotels of the early 20th century, with impeccable service and a passion for gastronomic detail, surrounded by its large private park consisting of gardens and the original farm, enclosed by the Curia Golf, in which you will find its 'Art Nouveau' swimming pool with its generous 600m2 of water mirror, tennis courts, society football field, an animal farm for the younger ones, a wine cellar and an organic vegetable garden.

European jewel of the Golden Twenties, combining the great tradition of Portuguese hospitality and distinguished service, the Palace da Curia, between Lisbon and Oporto, near the A1 highway exit in Mealhada, is a unique hotel experience of great excellence. Surrounded by its large private park and by bairradina vineyards. Inaugurated in 1926, it underwent a spectacular and careful comprehensive refurbishment project, which was not limited to simply imitating the past.

It reopened in mid-2008, preserving and honouring all its mysticism, classic ambience and original grandeur, thus recovering its own status as an unavoidable piece of the national hotel scene.

97 luxurious rooms and 3 suites, of classical proportions and in four different harmonious and smooth colour schemes, combining ivory with graphite, ruby, jacaranda or truffle and combining original pieces with signature contemporary furniture, all with fabulous marble bathrooms, in a perfect reinterpretation of the atmosphere and architectural language of the period, but with all the elegance, comfort and technology of the 21st century.

Its Belle Époque restaurant is an important stop both for the gastronomic and regional specialities it offers and for its exceptionally preserved 1920s atmosphere. Ideal conditions to hold important socio-professional events and social celebrations, given the unique characteristics and large capacity of the available offer: 5 meeting rooms, the modern Millennium Auditorium with capacity for 200 people and the beautiful Ballroom with capacity for 280 people that can be combined with the majestic Belle Époque Restaurant, and its terrace, to accommodate receptions up to 550 people.

It also features a fantastic Spa experience with the exclusive indoor jet pool, jacuzzis, Japanese bath, sauna, Turkish bath, massage and beauty salons, and fitness centre.

Private, classical-style chapel for worship and religious ceremonies, including wedding celebrations.

Differentiating aspects

The experience, whether you love it or hate it, of a Palace Hotel 'museum' that has been perfectly preserved up to the present day, with the added value of all the equipment being compatible with all the comforts and current technologies.

The charm of an unmissable piece of great architecture from the beginning of the 20th century provided by the genius of the Architect Norte Júnior, with all its artistic beauty and cultural atmosphere.

The fascination of delight in a grandly original environment of an era that was at the apotheosis of the exquisite art-de-vivre of present-day civilisation. The magic of the wide spaces and the feeling of freedom that emanates from it.

The breath of a literary hotel where the greats of today's literature take refuge to conceive their works. The cinematographic atmosphere of a hotel that has been the setting for many films.

The experience of diving into the infinite mass of thermal water in its immense swimming pool. The surrounding green space to enjoy the outdoors, for adults and children, with the smell of earth and vines.
