Maria Ursula

The Ballroom

After many years and journeys a new impression is finally added. The Palácio Belmonte at the foot of Castelo de São Jorge over the roofs of old Lisbon is, probably, the most beautiful hotel of the world.

The Ballroom

The Maria Ursula ballroom is a truly magical space perfect for special events, and private gatherings. Comfortable seating areas and large windows allow for a light and airy ambiance. Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of the ballroom is the 1764 hand painted azulejo tiles that date back to the 18th century. Each tile and mosaic is original and unique to the Belmonte.

Inspired by Maria Ursula

Maria Ursula d’Abreu e Lencastro was born in Rio de Janeiro. She would rise to the rank of corporal in the Portuguese military. In 1700, at the age of eighteen, she left her family and headed to Lisbon, the capital of the Portuguese Empire. Her idea was to live the adventures of cavalry and crusades that she had read in books. adventures that were forbidden to the women of her time. She enlisted herself as a soldier, with the false name of Baltasar do Couto Cardosoand served with distinction while dressed as a man.
