POUSADA do PORTO, Oporto

THE PAST:

The baroque Palácio do Freixo, built in 1742, is one of Oporto’s most beautiful monuments. In 1850, the Palace was sold to António Afonso Velado, one of the wealthiest men in the city. He was made Baron and Viscount of Freixo by King Luis, and used the palace as his residence. Some years later, the building was sold to the Harmonia Company, which built the adjacent flour mill. Palácio do Freixo was classified as a National Monument in 1910. Eventually, Oporto’s Mayor granted the Palace to the Pestana group, for the construction of Portugal’s biggest Pousada.

THE PRESENT:

The Pousada consists of the these two, historic, inter-connected buildings: the Palácio Freixo houses the restaurant, bar, lounges and meeting rooms; and the former 'Harmonia' flour mill is where the bedrooms - some with magnificent river views – are found, as well as a spa.
