Designed by the architect Nasoni and built in the mid 18th century, the Palacio do Freixo (Freixo Palace) is one of the most remarkable examples of Portuguese civil architecture from the baroque period. The Pousada has preserved the entire facade of the palace buildings, which became a National Monument in 1910. The property consists of two separate but interconnected buildings: the Palacio(or palace), which houses the restaurant, bar, lounges and meeting rooms; and the former Harmonia Flour Factory, where the rooms are to be found, some of them boasting a magnificent view over the river. The charming setting, the cuisine and the considerable on-site capacity make this the ideal choice not only for those seeking leisure pursuits but also as a venue for major events, encounters and meetings.

A gem in Porto

The property is spectacular, the staff are supremely helpful, the rooms are wonderful, and the restaurant is fabulous and reasonably priced for the quality of food and setting. We could not have asked for a better experience in Porto. Note that the hotel is not in the center of town, which was what we had wanted. It is about 40 minutes walking from the historic center. Also, definitely opt for a river view. It costs a little more, but it's magical.
