A Writer's Palace
Torel Palace Porto is an elegant new boutique five star-hotel in the heart of Porto with 24 rooms and Suites that opened in February 2020.
This new project by Torel Boutiques is housed in one of the most stunning historic palaces in Porto, the Palacete Campos Navarro. The Palace, dating back to 1861, and typical of those of the bourgeoisie at the time, is one of the most impressive and distinguished examples of the romantic architecture period in Porto. A highlight is an exceptionally stunning skylight (“Claraboia”).
The concept of Torel Palace Porto is to honor Portuguese writers and poets, among them Eça de Queiroz, Florbela Espanca and, of course, perhaps the best-known Portuguese writer, Fernando Pessoa.
Honoring the most iconic Portuguese writers and poets
The work of another exceptional writer, José Saramago, is celebrated in our gastronomic space Blind. “Blind” refers to one of Saramago´s most well-known novels, City Of The Blind. Located on the ground floor of the palace, the concept of Blind is to live the experiences of all five senses created by Blind´s Master Vitor Matos.
In our SKIN LIFE Wellness Suite you can enjoy massages and treatments with the exquisite products by the “Queen of Green” Tata Harper. Torel Boutiques are the only hotels to offer her products in Portugal.
Our outdoor space with a small heated pool offers the perfect place in the heart of the city to relax after a long day while sipping one of our signature cocktails.
