Viseu is the main city of the central region of Portugal. It is little known but has a very beautiful old quarter in the city centre. Viseu is one of the unknown gems of Portugal. The city is of Celtic origin and is the centre of the wine industry in the central region of Portugal.  An excellent base for exploring some of the least known, yet exciting regions of Portugal, especially the Serra da Estrela Nature reserve, the highest mountain range in Portugal hiding many medieval villages.

The Pousada and spa is set within the converted hospital building of São Teotónio, dating back to 1842. Three statues guard the entrance to the pousada: Faith, Hope and Charity. The building overlooks the rich architectural heritage of the old city of Viseu. The conversion from a hospital to a hotel is very interesting and features an enormous lobby/atrium. The various stages of the renovation are featured in various photographs and plans which are hung on the walls in the public areas.
