Francisco II4 Star Hotel

Bedoya, 17, 32003 Ourense

Guest review score

7.7 from 80 reviews

Hotel the hotel is a short walk to the famous thermal baths, Together, they represent most of the mountainous areas of Portugal to include, Serra de Aço, Serra de Alvão, Serra de Bornes, Serra da Estrela, Serra da Lapa, Serra do Larouco, Serra da Leomil, Serra do Mogadouro, Serra de Montezinho, Serra da Morofa and Serra de Reboredo. This hotel is in a quiet area in the centre of Ourense, The Romans named Chaves as “Aquae Flaviae” around 78 AD after their discovery of the thermal springs and nearby gold deposits. Its fertile surroundings and strategic position marked its early history with various battles and sieges between wandering tribes. The Portuguese eventually took possession of the town from the Moors in 1160. The town was given to Nuno Álvares Pereira by King João I as a reward for defeating the Castilians at the battle of Aljubarrota in 1385. General Silveira in 1809 defeated General Soult with his French invading army here at Chaves and this was the first victory for the Portuguese against the intruders. After the Republicans took control of Portugal in the early 20th Century the city was subject to a failed attack in 1912 from Royalists based in Spain. In 1483 the first published book in the Portuguese language, the "Sacramental", was produced in this town. Free Wi-Fi is available in all the rooms and there is a business centre, The City is bordered to the west by the beautiful remote region of Serra do Barroso and its ancient main town of Montalegre. Here the visitor will find a 27 meter high Keep of the 14th Century ruined castle. The small village of Boticas with its associated Spa of Carvalheiros is located closer to Chaves and has an unusual custom. During the invasion of the French army in 1809 the local inhabitants buried their locally produced wine in the ground rather than let it fall into the hands of the enemy. After the departure of these invaders the wine was retrieved and found to have improved in quality. It was nicknamed “vinho dos mortos”, which is wine of the dead,, and this practice has now become a routine leaving the wine underground for a period of about two years. The popular Spa Town of Vidago lies to the southwest of Chaves and even further south is another popular Spa named Pedras Salgadas. At the small village of Soutelo that lies close to the west of Chaves is a strange 50 meter long boulder covered in strange hieroglyphs that perhaps is from Celtic times. There is also a hairdresser/beauty salon and a hydromassage bath, very much appreciated, available at an extra cost, Of all these mountain ranges of the most prominent is the Serra da Estrela that rises to 1.993 metres, which is 6.539 feet, . During the winter the very top area of Serra da Estrela provides a ski resort but with somewhat limited runs for any experienced ski enthusiast. The past weather conditions have not been sufficiently reliable to create a large resort for this sport. The bare granite of this range of mountains has virtually insufficient vegetation to support more than the grazing of sheep. These sheep provide the most rated cheese of all in Portugal and is known by the trade name of "Serra". Like most mountain areas this is a popular location for walkers offering fascinating flora and panoramic views. The area has also developed a special breed of dog after which it is named. These dogs are generally prove to be very intelligent, brave and loyal to their owners. Their thick heavy coat helps as a natural protection to survive the regions cold winter climate. The Cathedral and the Old Quarter are also nearby, History of Chaves. Facilities at the the hotel include a fitness centre and a Turkish bath, The Transmontana tourist area is basically a region covering the north-east to the central-east part of Portugal, and covering areas know as the Trás-os-Montes, Beira Alta and Beira Baixa. The main towns of this vast Transmontana area are Bragança, Castelo Branco, Chaves, Guarda, Vila Real and Viseu. Most of these towns are close to the Portuguese border to Spain and have been historically much involved in defending the kingdom. The only other main town in this region is Covilhã which was a popular settlement for shepherds and was granted its status as a town in 1166. It later developed as a centre for the textile industry but in more recent history was a health resort due to its good air and waters. All the rooms are soundproofed, very much appreciated, heated and air conditioned, We made Sintra a magical and mystical place in dotting its abundant vegetation with palaces and romantic gardens while out on the island of Madeira we tend forests millennia in age. Francisco II has a café-restaurant, Discover the best of Portugal with all its fine monuments, cities and its wonderful landscapes shaped by man down the centuries. The cafeteria serves snacks, and above all, sandwiches, rolls and pizza, Introduction to Transmontana. There is satellite TV and a minibar, This Transmontana area also abounds in historic castles which acted from medieval times as a line of defence against the often invading Spanish and French armies. In many town visitors can find castles and forts that have for the better part withstood the results of battles and misfortune. Many of these monuments are associated with small medieval villages and even standing alone in the countryside. Starting from the northern boarder the most interesting locations are Montalegre, Chaves, Monforte de Rio Livre, Bragança, Algoso, Ansiães Numão and Freixo de Espada á Cima. Moving further south there is Penedono, Marialva, Castelo Rodrigo, Trancoso, Pihel, Almeida, Celorico da Beira, Linhares, Belmonte, Sabugal, Sortleha, Penamacor, Monsanto and Idana-a-Velha., Economically this whole area is generally considered the poorest in Portugal and it has been a tradition for many of the younger people of this area to emigrate to other countries in order to make a sufficiently good living to be able to send funds back to assist their families. An exception to this situation can be found on the lower slopes of mountain ranges, and in the valleys where the locals reap their living from forms of agriculture. A particularly richer region is to be found in the middle River Douro area which has concentrated for some centuries on the maintaining of vineyards for the important production of some of Portugal's fine wines and the even more famous "port wine". Visitors may visit or join conducted tours of most of these vineyards and sample their produce. An interesting historical fact is that in 1756 the foundation of the "Companhia da Agricultura dos Vinhos do Alto Douro was the first demarcation of wine areas introduced in the whole world., An very interesting way to see and feel the true culture and history of this region is to stay in one of the many Pousadas, most of which are heavily steeped in local atmosphere and with historic architecture of the region., Description of Chaves, This City is situated in the upper reaches of the Rio Tâmega that runs to the south and east to Porto. Its present day fame lies in its reputation as a Spa Town and the local produced cured hams. The old part of town is to be found around the main square with the ruins of a 14th Century Keep. This is all that remains of the former fine castle built for Nuno Álvares Pereira. The walls of the fortress are a fine example of the principles used by the French military defensive architect Count de Vauban. Of the two churches standing on the square the Misericódia is probably the most interesting with its large 18th Century tiled panels depicting scenes from the Bible. In the Keep is a small museum with armour and memorabilia of the 1912 attack. The Museu da Região Flaviense displays an interesting collection of items from local archaeological sites. The fine sixteen-arched Roman bridge, which is four arches are hidden from view,, spanning the Rio Tâmega is from the period of the Roman development of the town by Emperor Trajan. Close to the centre is one of the warmest natural springs Spas to be found in Europe with the water reaching up to 73º C, which is 163ºF, .
