Pousada de São Bartolomeu, Bragança
Portugal > Porto e Norte > BRAGANCA
Bragança is in a relatively remote province of Portugal that has a wild and beautiful landscape. Close to the Montesinho natural park where boar and other game still roam, this area is ideal for outdoor leisure pursuits and is perhaps not one of the most common tourist spots, but it has an interesting history. The Pousada de São Bartolomeu is a short walk from the old town and is named after the hill on which it sits. Unlike many other Pousadas it is a modern building, and the view down towards the city across the plateau to the mountains beyond is just breathtaking. Well appointed bedrooms have a balcony with a view of the pool (June-Sept) and 17thC castle, which is floodlit at night, and its excellent restaurant has recently been awarded a Michelin star. Superior rooms which are larger and have a safe, are also available.
