A fortress dominated by art
The Pestana Cidadela’s decor gives prominence to a project that is rare in Europe : an Art District within a hotel. In the 126 rooms, including 16 junior suites, 1 suite with sea view and 1 presidential suite, in addition to 17 author’s rooms, art and design lend each space an identity of its own. Staying here is almost like visiting a gallery, where every nook and cranny reveals surprising works by young artists. The presidential suite exhibits the works of Nadir Afonso, one of Portugal’s most prominent painters of the 20th and 21st centuries.
With views overlooking the fortress itself, or of the sea and the Cascais marina, the rooms - some with balcony - provide a sense of well-being and harmony, where aesthetics predominate.
