The legend of Quinta das Lagrimas

One of the most beautiful love stories ever told took place in the small city of Coimbra, Portugal.
The protagonists were Prince Pedro, a Portuguese man that lived during the 14th century, and a Spanish girl, Inés de Castro. They loved a lot each other but as many love tragedies, their most beloved ones didn’t want them to be together. The legend says that here Inés cried for 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 the romantic estate where this wedding inspiration shoot took place: Quinta das Lagrimas.When Pedro became king he crowned Inês as Queen of Portugal, post-mortem. He made everyone on court to kiss her dying corpse. Afterwards, he revenged her killing the soldiers of his father that stole the life of his love.
