The InterContinental Porto–Palacio das Cardosas, overlooking the Douro River estuary, is situated in the old city of Porto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and onetime outpost of the Roman Empire. The hotel offers guests luxury accommodation in convenient proximity to the famous port wine lodges of Vila Nova de Gaia, as well as the many vineyards of the nearby Douro River Valley, where wine production dates back to the 3rd century AD. The building - originally constructed as a monastery more than 200 years ago, before being converted to a private palace in the 19th century - was renovated under the direction of renowned Russian architect Alex Kravetz. The hotel is a short walk from such notable sights as the Baroque Clérigos Church, the boisterous Bolhão Market, and the colorful, cobblestone-paved Ribeira District. The hotel also features a bar with a well-stocked port wine cellar, as well as a full-service spa and wellness center with three treatment rooms. Enjoy a three-day, two-night stay in an Executive Guestroom with daily breakfast.
