The Experience

Apart from its luxurious rooms, you can find glamourous food just around the corner. Since Hotel Infante Sagres is the home of the Vogue Café, in Porto.

And if that is not your personal taste of the moment for relaxation, you can always visit the hotel’s rooftop and pool. A mirror to the city landscape and river, making you feel as if you are alone in Oporto.

The simple yet strong colored details in the rooftop invoke the importance of tile craftmanship in Portugal. You will see panels with beautiful tiles all around the city and the hotel.

Be sure to drink some native Port wine here too, and contemplate how lucky you are to also be a part of Hotel Infante Sagres’s history!
