Palmela 2011 Hotel
Update, February, 14, 2011:
The Palmela Castle Pousada is now fully booked by Palmela 2011 attendees. While we are very happy that we managed to get all of the Palmela Castle Pousada rooms exclusively for the Palmela 2011 attendees, we understand that many more want to attend this great event. To accommodate more Palmela 2011 attendees, we have extended our deal with the Pousadas de Portugal to the nearby Pousada de Setúbal. The IVRPA secured all of the rooms in the Setúbal Pousada exclusively for the Palmela 2011 attendees. Rates and booking procedure will be exactly the same and the Palmela 2011 organization will provide FREE minibus transfer between the Setúbal Pousada and the São João Theater, the main Palmela 2011 venue.
To accommodate Palmela 2011 conference attendees we chose the very best location in Palmela, the Palmela Castle Pousada.

The Palmela Castle Pousada is located inside the walls of the Palmela Castle, in this video you can see the castle appearing at about 2:20 min.
This historic luxury hotel is located on top of an imposing hill, and it is one of the best architectural fortresses in Portugal, specially known for its location and the magnificent views that it has to offer. Palmela boasts excellent wines and superb cuisine, and it is also the perfect starting place to discover the Costa Azul and the magnificent Arrábida Natural Park.
Pousada de Palmela, Castelo de Palmela, was inaugurated in 1979 after the adaptation works to the Convent, within the walls of the castle. With all its austerity, it is possible to enjoy its interior in a comfortable way that preserves a lot of the 17th Century.
