One of the most beautiful cities in Portugal
Coimbra, one of the most beautiful cities in Portugal, is one step away from the Quinta’s gates, offering stunning convents and churches, one of the oldest universities in the world (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and over one thousand years of History and legends. Coimbra is a city of poets, of scholars and students, and of Fado, that nostalgic tune that is the mirror image of Portugal. Halfway between Lisbon and Porto, Coimbra is an indispensable stop for all those who travel in search of the real Portugal.
Coimbra’s surrounding region is so rich in monuments and cultural traditions that it deserves a thorough visit. Around the city you’ll find Roman ruins, white sand beaches, semi-virgin mountains, nature reserves, castles, and convents. Around Coimbra visit the Roman ruins of Conímbriga, the Castle of Montemor, the mountains of Lousã and Bussaco, and Figueira da Foz.
Just one hour from Porto airport this could well be the best place for your corporate or private event in the center of one of the most impressive cities of Portugal, Coimbra!

The perfect setting for your event
Quinta das Lágrimas is the perfect setting for all types of private and corporate events. The estate offers privacy, a superior service quality, an excellent location half-way between Lisbon and Porto, and the possibility to use the gardens for cocktails or team-building activities.
The four seasons at Quinta das Lágrimas
Throughout Summer the verandas welcome guests after a day spent relaxing by the pool, and the garden becomes a dining room for meals “al fresco”. In Spring the Quinta witnesses the rebirth of Nature, and the botanical garden takes center stage. With Autumn the green canopy gives way to a palette of earth tones as the leaves change color. Come Winter and the hotel grows even cozier: glittering fireplaces warm body and soul, and the Christmas spirit makes magic throughout the palace.
