Overview
Discover the tragic love story of Peter and Inês de Castro — a regal prince besotted by his wife’s lady-in-waiting — on a private full-day tour of Coimbra and Quinta das Lágrimas from Lisbon. Alongside your personal guide, you’ll visit sites associated with the ill-fated couple as you hear their heartbreaking tale. Enter the Monastery of Santa Clara — the site at which Inês de Castro was assassinated — and see the Relais & Chateaux in Quintas das Lágrimas, the town the couple lived for most of their illicit romance.
Highlights
    What to Expect
    After pickup from a location of your choice, greet your private guide and board an air-conditioned minibus destined for Coimbra — a picturesque medieval city in the center of Portugal. In Coimbra, you’ll visit the Monastery of Santa Clara — the site of Inês de Castro’s assassination — and marvel at the grand architecture of the University of Coimbra, a UNESCO-listed site.

    Proceed to Quinta das Lágrimas — a luxurious hotel surrounded by beautiful botanical gardens — and explore the place the couple spend most of their romance. See, too, the Fonte das Lágrimas which, according to local legend, if full of the tears Inês de Castro shed before she was murdered.

    Finally, head to the impressive Alcobaca Monastery to see the magnificent tombs of the ill-fated lovers. Your tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point in Lisbon.
