Parador Casa da Ínsua, located in Penalva do Castelo, 20 minutes away from Viseu, is a baroque style manor-house, built during the 18th century by order of Luís de Albuquerque de Mello Pereira e Cáceres, Governor and General-Captain of Cuibá and Mato Grosso, in Brazil.
In 2009, this building underwent renovation works and it became a five-star country house hotel, oriented towards leisure and events tourism.
Walking through the gardens is not the only activity you can enjoy. You can also taste the wines that are produced in the house, spend the morning with a shepherd, watch closely watch closely the Serra da Estrela cheese and jam handmade making process, participate in the Farm activities such as working in the vegetable garden or picking up fruit, as well as enjoy walking throughout the green fields, and the outdoor swimming pool during the hotter season.
Perfect for those you search a quieter place outsider the city, the Parador Casa da Ínsua stands out for its unparalleled ambiance, and its historic charm can be seen in the most surprising details.
