The 1877 Estrela Palace, with unobstructed views towards the ‘very famous’ Ria de Aveiro, is a unique building that dates back to the late 17th century. A magnificent Palace that once belonged to an important family of merchants from Aveiro with commercial connections to England, the ‘Barbosas’.  Over the years, renovations have been made to the building, but its original design has always been preserved.

The Majestic 1877 maintains its architectural features and preserves the art nouveau charm of the 19th century, for which reason Aveiro stands out as a member of the Art Nouveau Network.

Recently renovated, the technical project under the supervision of the architect Sónia Cruz has retained all the elements and fine, natural materials that have characterised it since the time Dona Ana Ponce de Leão lived there and, subsequently, Colonel Teixeira and the rest of the family.
