Where to stay in Castelo Branco

About Castelo Branco

With a fine collection of museums in its medieval streets, the historic city of Castelo Branco has emerged as a cultural hub. Its name translates as “white palace”, and it is home to one of Europe’s most impressive baroque gardens at the white-washed Episcopal Palace.

Things to do

Castelo Branco’s Old Town still exhibits 15th-century trading houses with beautifully decorated doors and windows, together with the highly ornate churches of the Misericordia and São Miguel. Its skyline is dominated by the Romanesque towers of the 13th-century Knights Templar Castle, but its symbol remains the lavish Episcopal Palace, created by Bishop João de Mendonça in the 18th century.

Wander between the landscaped beds, hedgerows and feature pools of the Jardim do Paço Episcopal, adorned with statues of kings, saints and apostles, then take in the views of the estate from the palace’s grandiose terraces and staircases.

Gain a better understanding of Castelo Branco’s history at the Francisco Tavares Proença Júnior Museum, where you’ll find exhibits highlighting ancient artworks and archaeological finds, as well as beautifully embroidered 16th-century bedspreads. If you’re interested in traditional Portuguese arts, then you should also make a stop at the Cargaleiro Museum where local paintings, ceramics, sculptures and tapestries are on display.

Castelo Branco serves as the gateway to Tagus International Natural Park which straddles the river of the same name. If you’re thinking of heading out to explore its walking trails, first make a stop at the Environmental Interpretation Centre in town to learn about the natural heritage of this protected area.

Getting around

Castelo Branco is connected by daily trains from Lisbon, with the journey taking just under three hours. Most of the town’s sights are within an easy walking distance of one another, and public bus services are also available.
