Quinta das Lágrimas is much more than just a charming hotel. The comfort of its rooms and halls is combined with a historical past and a love legend that is lost in time. It was here that, in the 14th century, the forbidden love affair of Prince Pedro with a beautiful Galician maiden called Inês de Castro took place.
Legend tells that it was at Quinta das Lágrimas that Inês wept for the last time as she was stabbed by the daggers of the three noblemen whom Pedro's father, King Afonso IV, had ordered to be killed. The blood she shed then still colours the stones of the fountain that was born from her tears.
The palace has numerous rooms and balconies that offer perfect retreats for reading and conversation. The library, lined with exotic wood panelling, holds thousands of old books that tell the story of Portugal and of the family that today, as in the past, welcomes guests in this happy house with tears.
Our kitchen uses the traditional products of this region to create recipes with a unique flavour by the hands of Chef Vítor Dias.
Quinta das Lágrimas has a golf academy led by PGA professionals and specialised in short game training.
Quinta das Lágrimas is a veritable plant museum with a collection of world-class gardens: romantic, Japanese, medieval, smelling gardens, organic vegetable garden and extensive woodland.
