An historic site a short walk from Coimbra medieval centre
On the site of a famous but tragic fourteenth-century love story between Prince Pedro and Inês de Castro, Quinta das Lágrimas holds the secrets of this fateful affair. Providing a superb choice of accommodation, guests may choose from the magnificent 18th-century palace, the Garden residence or the slick modernity of the Spa building, and enjoy a nine-hole pitch-and-putt course, a lake, two pools and a fine-dining restaurant.
Quinta das Lágrimas has an undoubtedly romantic air. The yellow and white façade of the hotel gives a grand and stately impression. With superb gardens packed with rare trees, the fountain that is said to be born of the tears of the fateful Inês de Castro, murdered for her illicit love affair, and the beautifully decorated rooms throughout, this hotel is both enchanting and totally unique.Read more[SPLIT]Read less
