Down the Alentejo coast, famous for its virtually virgin sands, is the fishing town of Sines. In the centre, enclosed by a pine forest, is the Hotel Dom Vasco. With Vasco da Gama’s travels of India in mind, this thematic hotel has perfectly combined the beauties of the surrounding environment and the exotic feel of this south-Asian country. Elegance and beauty enclose this hotel, ideal for your holiday or business trip.

For many centuries, this coastal town dedicated itself to fishing. The colours, gastronomy and culture of this commerce is still apparent in Sines’ everyday life. It is the ideal place to savour the flavours of the ocean, cooked in a typical Portuguese way. Visit the nearby long sandy beaches; just a few minutes drive away. The Alentejo coast is known for having large, well-preserved beaches with carefully maintained sand dunes as well as rare vegetation, tall rocks and perfect waves in transparent waters for the daring surfers.

It is also known for being the birthplace of Vasco da Gama, the famous Portuguese explorer that found the maritime route to India. Following his journeys, Vasco da Gama would occasionally return to Sines, where his influence is obvious. Visit the 15th century castle where this distinguished sailor spent his childhood. The views from this point are astonishing, as are the ones from the nearby Revelim fortress.

In the heart of one of Portugal’s most distinguished towns, you will be able to enjoy all this and much more.
