The Pousada

The Pousada at dusk

Near the Vila Formoso border and within the old walls of the village you will find the Pousada of Almeida. It reveals, in spite of its modern atmosphere and spacious rooms, the historical and cultural grandiosity of the village of Almeida, now a classified National Heritage.

History of Almeida:

The council of Almeida presents some evidences of human presence since the Paleolithic, having detected cities of the Bronze and Iron Age, as well as evidence of Roman presence.

But it was in the Medieval period that this territory suffered a great evolution, the consequence of its location near the border of the Portuguese territory and the creation of the councils guaranteeing the occupation of this region.

For a long period of time, the Côa River defined the border between Portugal and the Kingdom of Leão. In 1297, with the Alcanices settlement, by the king D. Dinis, the east territories in Portugal were definitely integrated.  With this larger region, Almeida and Castelo Bom received greater strategic importance.

Nowadays, the council of Almeida has three of the councils created in the Middle Ages. The village with the same name is located in the Mesas Upeland, 7km far from the border of Spain. The council presents a great historical fortune based in the existence of two medieval villages, Castelo de Mendo and Castelo Bom, and the historical village of Almeida.
