The Hotel Quinta das Lagrimas and Spa was for centuries a private sanctuary that welcomed kings of Portugal. It has been converted into an exclusive hotel that welcomes visitors to the historic City of Coimbra and its area. Quinta das Lágrimas literally translates as "estate of tears" and was the scene of the forbidden and tragic love affair between Prince Pedro and Dona Inês de Castro in the 14th century. Take a step back in time as you enter the library, filled with thousands of ancient books that narrate the history of Portugal.
Hotel Quinta das Lágrimas and Spa offers 3 different room styles. Stay in one of the palace rooms which was once used by the Duke of Wellington during the Peninsular War, or, opt for a garden room overlooking the botanical garden. The Spa rooms include a private jacuzzi with stunning views of Coimbra. The palace has several rooms, verandahs that offer perfect retreats, or relax by the pool and dine "alfresco" in the garden.
Awarded a Michelin star, the restaurant serves seasonal dishes prepared with only the freshest of ingredients. Indulge in traditional specialties that include fruit and vegetables grown on the estate. A second restaurant offers casual dining and a Latin cuisine concept.
