Verride Palácio Santa Catarina [Portugal]

A historic townhouse in the heart of Lisbon

Lisbon is a year-round destination. The weather helps: rarely too hot or cold. But also, for all it has to offer – great historical depth, exciting gastronomic scene, and a multicultural art heritage mixing African, Brazilian and European rhythms and concepts to feed one’s cultural fix.

The beaches, castles, palaces and other historic monuments. The contemporary design that you will find in graffiti street walls, to modern buildings and interiors combining vintage with the latest designer pieces. The nightlife is full of vibrant bars and clubs, in addition to great art exhibitions and ambitious cultural agenda.

Rooms at Verride Palácio Santa Catarina come with wide windows overlooking the ancient quarters of Lisbon’s up and coming neighbourhood of Bica, with the uniqueness of the local bohemian culture that is prevailing here – a vantage point to watch the city’s sunsets and be immersed in its soundscape.

The opulence of the 18th-century building can be felt in the intricate restored wooden sculpted ceilings, Portuguese tile panels, rococo style stuccos and hand-painted silk wallpapers.

The intimate SUBA restaurant offers a showcase of modern cuisine, playing on the seafood and fish staples of the city’s culinary heritage. The views of the Tagus river and the painterly landscape are as romantic and nostalgic as a beautiful Fado song. A stay to fall in love with a country that has been awarded leading destination in the world for the past 3 years.
