Europe 2: A Tale of Two Castles

Europe  2: A Tale of Two Castles

The history of Portugal is being preserved in "pousadas," which are castles, convents, and monasteries that have been converted into hotels. Here we experience the splendor of these historic hotels on this fabulous European tour. In a picturesque village near Lisbon is the Castle of Palmela. This pousada was originally founded by the Romans and later captured by Moors. Next we view the Pousada da Rainha Santa Isabel in Estremoz. This former royal palace dates back to the 14th century and is still majestic. Leaving Portugal, we next journey to Ireland to visit one of the top resorts in the world. Ashford Castle, located in Cong, County Mayo, which dates back to the 11th century. From the 19th century it was a part of the Guinness family holdings until its sale and conversion into a grand hotel in 1939. Celebrities and dignitaries from around the world have stayed here and enjoyed the gardens, the fishing, and the golfing on the 500-acre-estate. 02/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
