Hotel Fortelaza Do Guincho
Perched on a rocky hillside, in Cascais, overlooking a long stretch of fine sand stands the Moorish looking Michelin starred Hotel Fortelaza Do Guincho. The historic legacy of this traditional fortress dates back to 1762 when Spain was in the 7 year war with Portugal. All of the interiors have been preserved despite most of the building having been blown up by Spanish troops.
A stunning testimony to the influences from the time, the interiors of the hotel combine traditional statues of saints, with ornately dressed opulent rooms in hues of purple, deep orange and blues with rich velours. The luxurious private rooms, combine original authenticity, with modern comfort. The Michelin restaurant has classically French trained Portuguese Masterchef winner Miguel Vieira, as Executive Chef; credited with achieving the only Michelin star for Hungary at Costes Restaurant in Budapest.
