Dated from 1742, Palácio do Freixo is one of the most beautiful monuments of Oporto (the capital of the north of Portugal).
In its baroque style, this wonderful Palace was projected by the famous architect Nicolau Nasoni –the most important baroque architect in Porto and North of Portugal. Nicolau Nasoni is responsible for the Oporto ex-libris – Torre dos Clérigos..

In 1850 the Palace was sold to Mr António Afonso Velado, one ofthe most rich merchant of the city, who was nominated by King D.Luis as Freixo`s Baron and Viscount.
Mrs Velado used the palace as his residence for years.
Later the building was sold to Companhia Harmonia, which has created a “moagem company”, side by side of the Palace.

The company was enlarged during the 50`s and 60`s.
Palácio do Freixo was classified as National Monument in 1910 and in 1986, the State acquired the palace to the Moagens Harmonia, which has installed a Professional training center.
Later the Mayor granted the Palace to Group Pestana, for the construction of the biggest Pousada de Portugal – Pousada do Freixo.

The Pousada do Freixo is composed by two buildings: the palace where the Public areas stands (restaurant, bar, living and meeting rooms) and which is connected to the ancient “Fábrica das Moagens Harmonia” (in which are located 87 fantastic Rooms with view to the river).
