Dom Gonçalo Hotel & Spa is a success story of a family business. Founded by José Heleno and his wife Maria Emília Testa, its origin dates back to 1965 when it emerged as a small café and grocery store. The business expanded its activity, first to Restaurant that acquired great fame, after Pensão, Estalagem and finally Hotel. Already under the direction of the couple's son, Jorge Heleno, the hotel has always maintained a personalized and familiar treatment making it one of the most recommended hotels for families in Portugal. The name of the hotel honors the heroic knight Gonçalo Hermingues. This 12th-century knight, also known as Traga-Moors, married a young Moorish woman named Fatima who was converted to Catholicism.
