Quinta das Lágrimas

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.

Sunny days can be spent lingering by the outdoor pool interspersed with indulgent spa treatments. Practise your golf moves at the golf academy or take a romantic walk through the gardens or along the River Mondego in Dr Manuel Braga Park, overlooking the city. Discover Coimbra’s medieval centre and intriguing alleyways packed with cafes and the city’s unique form of Fado, sung only by men. Return to Quinta das Lágrimas for dinner in Arcadas da Capella restaurant.

A very good service, and excellent staff

We loved to stay in this hotel. They gave us an excellent room, and helped us a lot. We had only one week vacation, in between cancer treatments and they make it unforgettable. A nice room with a little garden, the pool and the excellent food. We thank you for all of this.

Above and beyond!

We stayed for two nights at Quinta das lágrimas and from the start the staff was kind and helpful. We were celebrating a special occasion, and were upgraded to a suite which was beautiful and comfortable. There were also some pastéis de nata and port in the room! Perhaps one improvement is the soundproofing Read more[SPLIT]Read lessin the room, as we could hear conversations through our walls. But the building being old and historic, and the room we stayed in was in the older part of the hotel, so we understand there will quirks such as this one. It was easily solved with a sound machine app on our phone, so we slept quite well. The breakfast service is fantastic, and the staff at breakfast are some of the kindest people we encountered on our trip! Overall, we would definitely stay here again due to the close attention to detail and exceptional service provided by the staff! Make sure you walk around the gardens if you stay there, as they are quite beautiful!

The highlight of our trip to Portugal!

The lunch on the patio was beautiful and the food was delicious. Enjoying a glass of wine in the little garden outside of our room. An elegant dinner. We stayed with you five years ago, and knew our trip would not be complete without reliving the beauty of Das Lagrimas again. We will be back someday Read more[SPLIT]Read lessagain!

One of Portugal's Finest

What a great place to come and relax and explore the surrounding area. The hotel itself has a great feel and a fantastic history to explore both in the buildings and the grounds.

As a “Garden Spa” we incorporate in our treatments natural elements that possess rejuvenation properties, as is the case of the bamboos that flourish in our botanical garden. The bamboo tree is a symbol of Nature’s vitality since it generates more oxygen than the other trees, purifying the atmosphere and the soil. Its natural properties give it the capability of recovering damaged tissues and some people even attribute aphrodisiac properties to it, reason why we use it in our signature massage for couples. The Bamboo Garden Spa boasts: - Indoor pool - Treatment rooms (massages, aromatherapies, etc). The massages can be experience on the garden as well as in the privacy of the guestrooms - Sauna and Turkish bath - Fitness Room - Regular experiences with specialists in rejuvenation and meditation.
