Hotel

Situated at the heart of the historical center of Vila do Conde, Hotel Brazão (3 stars), welcomes its hosts in an emblazoned building from the 17th century. Its 30 rooms have been totally remodeled and assure the comfort and quietness needed for a pleasant stay. Being in the vicinity of a river, the sea and a city with a millennial history,  makes it the perfect destination for the lovers of sports, architecture and/or culture. Hotel Brazão is owned by Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Vila do Conde since 2010 and was acquired with the intent of monetizing the Institution’s resources to gather income to cover for the expense of its social services.
