Palace Hotel

Friend Paulo picked me up at the airport and took me directly to the first emblematic place we would know in Estoril: The Palácio Hotel.

Dressed in thin multi-pocket pants, a T-shirt and my little backpack, I left the back seat of the sporty black BMW in which they had brought me. I looked up and a bellboy in king's clothes - especially next to mine - accompanied me to the reception. Clearly, I was out of my world.

Hall parallel to the Royal Gallery of the Hotel Palacio

I was taken, immediately, to the place where the rest of the group - I arrived last - looked at the pictures of all the European royalty personalities They had stayed at the hotel. Don Juan de Borbón is in this Royal Gallery.

He Hotel Palácio was built in 1930 and there are places inside that make you wonder if you are not really at that time. Although it has been remodeled several times to improve its features and adapt them to modern life, the hotel has managed to maintain an air to another era, much desired by many of its guests who love history.
