The former hunting palace of the last Portuguese kings, Bussaco Palace Hotel is a national monument. An excellent example of Manueline-Gothic architecture, richly decorated corridors, antique furnishings, large paintings and traditional Portuguese Azulejos (tiles) set the tone. The elegant restaurant serves classic French cuisine and traditional Portuguese dishes and offers a range of exclusive Bussaco wines. The restaurant is decorated with paintings by João Vaz, Moresque ceilings and exotic-wood floors. The palace bar has a range of rare Port vintage. Rooms feature a classic decor with period furniture ranging from 18-century to Art-Nouveau pieces. Rooms overlook the hotel’s extensive gardens.

The DNA: Listed in the '1000 Places to See Before You Die´, the romantic castle, envisioned as a neo-gothic fantasy by Prince Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, King Consort of Portugal and cousin of Albert, Queen Victoria's husband and Prince Consort of the United Kingdom, and  built by his grandson King Charles I of Portugal, with its overwhelming eclectic architecture - a flurry of excesses, a hotchpotch of styles -of stone carving, pinnacles, turrets, gargoyles, twists, pillars, arches, tiles, marble and nautical references and echoes of the Tower of Belém in Lisbon, is truly one-of-a-kind.
