Established in June 1964, Hotel Grão Vasco was the first big hotel in Viseu.
Hotel Grão Vasco was designed by the architect Alberto Pereira da Cruz who signed other remarkable projects such as the Museum of Caramulo, Hotel Alvor-Praia, Hotel Delfim, Hotel Baia and Hotel Cidadela in Cascais among many others.
