Built at the end of the 15th century, and rebuilt three centuries later, it was supposedly from one of the balconies of the Palácio dos Arcos that King Manuel I watched Portuguese caravels leave to India.
The palace often received royal families who were staying in its rooms to watch the regattas on the Tagus River. Nowadays the Vila Galé Collection Palácio dos Arcos is the first five-star unit of the Vila Galé group in Portugal.
Inaugurated in 2013, this charming hotel in Lisbon, which resulted from the rehabilitation of historical heritage and now combines the tradition of a century-old palace with the comfort of a modern space, is dedicated to the theme of poetry. Moving around the hotel means 'crossing' Florbela Espanca, Fernando Pessoa, Vinícius de Moraes or Eugénio de Andrade.
