The Palace Hotel of Bussaco

(Portuguese: Palácio Hotel do Buçaco), is a luxury hotel located in the mountain range of Serra do Bussaco, in the municipality of Mealhada, in central Portugal.

The Palace Hotel of Bussaco was built between 1888 and 1907. The first architect was the Italian Luigi Manini, who designed a Romantic palace in Neo-Manueline style, evoking the 16th-century architectural style that characterised the peak of the Portuguese Age of Discovery.
The Bussaco Palace is inspired in iconic Manueline buildings like the Jerónimos Monastery and the Belém Tower, both located in Lisbon.
