High on Lisbon’s most central hill above the bustle of Avenida da Liberdade stands the elegant Torel Palace. The hotel offers stunning panoramic views over the Tagus River, the city center, and São Jorge Castle. Torel Palace consists of two historic palaces and a mansion that are adjacent to each other with a courtyard running between.
It once stood a typical Lisbon townhouse, dating back to 1904. Joao together with his partners decided to renovate it. After three months of restoration works and preparation, the mansion was shining in new splendor and the Torel Palace was born.
This tranquil haven offers a range of accommodations with bedrooms named after the Kings and Queens of Portugal, with a history of the relevant monarch next to your bedside. Jaw-dropping views of the city and the river can be appreciated from the terrace and pool, and the hotel feels like a real retreat from the big city despite being a short walk from Lisbon’s sights and attractions.
