Hotel Curia Palace.

Hotel Curia Palace.

Tonight I am staying in a hotel in a small portuguese town called Curia. It’s a tiny town in central Portugal that is mostly known for it’s natural springs that has given way to a little bit of spa tourism and in the middle of the whole thing is a giant hotel called Curia Palace, that was build in 1926, during the roaring 20’s.

The hotel has a really nice park in front of the giant entrance and at the reception it’s all wooden panels and chandeliers and an old bartender who has a stylish arrogance that fits right in to the time pocket that this hotel is. The dining area is another art deco master piece, where you would almost expect old movie stars to appear at any time.

The rooms at the Curia Palace Hotel are very modern though and extremely comfortable, with a nice big bathroom and very comfortable beds. The hotel has been restored quite recently and it really shows in the rooms that were getting a little shabby in the past, but now they are really nice.

There is nothing to see in Curia, but you should go there anyway.

 

This is a little town that should be visited purely for this hotel. I know that there is a bit of spa tourism and a 9 hole golf course, but apart from that, it’s a very very quiet town. But I’m actually quite happy that the town does not have any big sights I need to focus on, so that I can just put all my attention to this super cool old hotel, where I can dream myself back to one of the most vibrant parts of modern history, where people partied like there was no tomorrow and didn’t give a fuck about what old puritan farts told them to do and not to do đŸ™‚

I’m having a great time here and I hope you will too.
