Palácio de Estoi (Estoi Palace)


Palácio de Estoi (Estoi Palace)


Although it began being built in the 1840s, Estoi Palace was not completed until 1909, by José Francisco da Silva, the Viscount of Estoi.

The architectural design of the property, by architect Domingos da Silva Meira, is markedly eclectic, combining neoclassical and Rococo styles.

The buildings are exceptionally beautiful, particularly the palace. A double staircase leads up to an impressive facade and the interior is decorated with tiled panels, stained glass and plasterwork.

Equally interesting are the gardens, laid out in French style and containing fruit trees, palm trees, fountains and a number of sculptures.

Recently restored, the palace now functions as a “pousada de charme” (charm hotel).
