Relais Chateaux, Quinta das Lagrimas, is on one side an 18th century palace, on the other a most modern building, designed by one of Portugal's most reputed architects.
These houses are a perfect blend of traditional and modern. The 12-hectare park, a genuine museum of plants where tree species from all 5 continents are planted, takes you to a romantic stroll. Equally imposing, the spa, a sanctuary of peace and serenity and its beautiful indoor pool, are the ideal places to relax and recharge. The perfect place from which to discover Coimbra - "the royal" - the city of poets and fado music.
