Built in the late fifteenth century and rebuilt three centuries later, history says that it was from the balconies of Palácio dos Arcos [literally, Palace of the Arches] that King Manuel I watched the caravels leaving on their way to India.
Used to welcoming royalty – who stayed in this palace to attend the famous regattas on the Tagus River – Vila Galé Collection Palácio dos Arcos is the first five-star unit of the Vila Galé group in Portugal.
But there are other areas that you can’t miss.
To fight stress, the Satsanga Collection spa offers an indoor pool, sauna, Hydromassage pool, Turkish bath and a gym, as well as rooms for massages and aesthetic treatments.
For the refined palates, the gourmet restaurant ‘Inevitável’ focuses on typical Portuguese cuisine, reinvented by the Vila Galé executive chef Francisco Ferreira, always with the Tagus river as your company. Make sure you also visit the library, the wine club or the chapel, with its baroque altar.
Offering free wi-fi in all areas, Vila Galé Collection Palácio dos Arcos also has a meeting room in the Palace’s old wine cellar.
To enjoy the open air and sea mist, stroll around the gardens, with their centenary trees, which are the backdrop of the outdoor pool
