ABOUT CASA DA TORRE VISEU

Let's make this space your home

Welcome to Casa da Torre!

This is the house where one of the most fantastic personalities of Viseu lived: José Coelho.

Archeologist, professor and politician, he was one of those people who was ahead of his time and who did everything to investigate and teach History, Archeology and Local Heritage.

Throughout the spaces of this house, you can get to know José Coelho’s personality, his main investigations and gradually enter into the intimacy of his being.

It is located inside a three-storey tower that, due to its monumentality and aesthetic effect, assumes a preponderance in the built set. It is a revivalist construction, whose elevations refer us to different styles of Art History, where we can observe the Romanesque, Manueline and Gothic styles.

In addition to the historic surroundings of this space, Casa da Torre has all the amenities for our guests to enjoy a perfect stay. In addition to a large and pleasant dining and living room, all rooms have a unique and themed decor, private bathroom, and are equipped with air conditioning, LCD TV with cable channels, minibar, security safe, kettle and radio- alarm clock.
There is wireless high speed internet in all areas of the House and a pleasant outdoor space with a garden.

In our private parking (free) there is a fast charger for electric vehicles.

For visitors more interested in José Coelho’s life and work, we are pleased to provide access to the Casa’s library, where his private collection of magazines and works can be found.

We look forward to your visit!
