About The Hotel

A stay with history

Quinta das Lágrimas is much more than just a charming hotel. The comfort of its rooms and suites is complemented by a medieval legend of love.

It was at the Quinta that in the XIVth-century Prince Pedro and Inês de Castro lived their forbidden love affair. Legend says that it was here that Inês cried for the last time, while being pierced by the daggers of the killers sent by King Afonso, Pedro’s father. Her blood still colors the stone-bed of the fountain that was born of her tears - the tears that gave the name to this romantic estate.

The palace has several rooms and verandas that offer perfect retreats to read or enjoy a quiet conversation. The Quinta’s library, completely covered with panels of exotic woods, has thousands of ancient books that narrate the history of Portugal and of the family that for centuries has welcomed guests in this Estate of Tears.

Staff was terrific, accommodating our requests and surprising us with a bottle of sparkling wine in honor of our wedding anniversary.
