Alma do Paço
It is believed that the name ‘Paço’ (pronounced Passo) means ‘ancient palace’.
Once upon a time in 1368, there was a king, Fernando the 1st, who wanted to build a palace to enjoy the summers with his lovely lady Leonor. On top of a hill in a little town called Ericeira, he planted his flag and decided “This is it – paradise found!”
Fast forward to 2023,
the Manueline-style masonry ruins are still visible from where you lay by the pool, relaxing like a king. Experience that majestic feeling that will be locked into your soul, or – in Portuguese – your “Alma”, forever.
