Paco de Pombeiro - Restored Castle Along The Romanesque RoutePaco  
de Pombeiro

Not long ago, it was just another ruined castle. Now beautifully restored, it sits in 10 hectares of land and a historic vineyard. The old outbuildings have been incorporated into the new design to create a modern complex making the most of the historic architecture. In 1163 a crusading knight, friend of Richard the Lionheart, and scourge of Seljuk Turks built the castle with plunder captured from the Middle East.

When you stay there, you can discover more of its colorful history. New buildings mimic the colors of the land and the designs of the original buildings. Castle-style turrets divide the glass-fronted rooms and protect your privacy. There are outside spaces in the form of patios. The old farm-worker’s cottage has been renovated and given a luxury makeover. There is a library, kitchen, and games room. The hotel is animal-friendly and has its own kennels. In the afternoons you can laze by the pool.
