The Rebello Hotel sits on the banks of the Douro river, once a warehouse for port wine and pots and pans. Spanish designer Daniela Franceschini drew inspiration from the historical use of industrial space. As you step into the entrance, you can’t help but notice the distinctive colors, textures, and materials that were curated by the art and furniture pieces of Portuguese artists.
