Where land ends and your holidays begin Known for centuries as the "end of the world", there is something magical and mystical about Sagres, even for the most pragmatic person in the world.The unadulterated contact with nature and her elements in their purest state makes this Pousada one of the most rustic, free and intimate Pestana Charming Hotels you will ever visit. Welcome to Sagres, the town that witnessed the arrival of Henry the Navigator and his navigation school, who have changed the way the medieval world thought about itself. An extraordinary place for its location, history and features, it will set the tone for a completely different holiday experience. Upon arrival at the Pousada de Sagres, two things will immediately impress you: it seems as if you are entering an old oversized school, with the typical Portuguese architecture of the 60s, and you feel like you are reaching a point of no return, the origin of the famous phrase "where land ends and sea begins". Your whole perspective on holidays is bound to change. After all, this is not a beach inn, it is a venue where elements merge and offer you shelter for you to better appreciate them. At the front desk, two lamp stands evoking port and starboard deliver the first notice to skippers: all channels here are passages and all corridors will lead you to safe harbor.
And if you have any doubts on the proper use of the most famous nautical terms, it is here in Sagres, on the promontory, that you will find an explanation you will never forget. Walk down the bar room and the two living rooms: one with a more demure decor, woody and intimate, drawing your attention to the winter; and the other one, lighter and white, with blue stripes and white puffs inviting you to read the national or international newspaper brought to you by the staff. The sea is omnipresent in the whole venue, with the incredible Portalegre tapestries designed by the surrealist artist Cândido Costa Pinto: "Faith and the Empire" and the "Maritime Saga" evoking, in a mystical and geometrical manner, the departure of the discoverers of yore, the grandeur of the kingdom of Portugal, and the enormous amount of magic and superstition that surrounded all those deeds. In the winter, when the Sun shines almost every day, the fireplace is lit to welcome you: after all, the cold can be biting (especially if you wander to the Cape of St. Vincent) and the numerous strolls that you can take around these cliffs come with a price.
