Coimbra is, without a doubt, a "must see" spot in Portugal!

Yes and is in the common with the historical gardens of the city



THE TRAGIC LOVE OF D. PEDRO AND INÊS DE CASTRO

Inês came to Portugal in 1340 as a maid of Infanta Constance of Castile, recently married to Prince Pedro, the heir to the Portuguese throne. The prince fell in love with her and started to neglect his lawful wife, endangering the already feeble relations with Castile. Moreover, Pedro's love for Inês brought the exiled Castilian nobility very close to power, with Inês's brothers becoming the prince's friends and trusted advisors. King Afonso IV of Portugal, Pedro's father, disliked Inês's influence on his son and waited for their mutual infatuation to wear off, but it did not.



Inês's murder in the Quinta das Lágrimas in Coimbra
Constance of Castile died in 1345. Afonso IV tried several times to arrange for his son to be remarried, but Pedro refused to take a wife other than Inês, who was not deemed eligible to be queen. Pedro's legitimate son, future king Ferdinand I of Portugal, was a frail child, whereas Pedro and Inês's illegitimate children were thriving; this created even more discomfort among the Portuguese nobles, who feared the increasing Castilian influence over Pedro. Afonso IV banished Inês from the court after Constance's death, but Pedro remained with her declaring her as his true love. After several attempts to keep the lovers apart, Afonso IV ordered Inês's death. Pêro Coelho, Álvaro Gonçalves, and Diogo Lopes Pacheco went to the Monastery of Santa Clara-a-Velha in Coimbra, where Inês was detained, and killed her, decapitating her in front of her small child. When Pedro heard of this he sought out the killers and managed to capture two of them in 1361.[2] He executed them publicly, ripping their hearts out claiming they didn't have one having pulverized his own heart.

Pedro became King of Portugal in 1357. He then stated that he had secretly married Inês, who was consequently the lawful queen, although his word was, and still is, the only proof of the marriage. Legend has it that he had Inês's body exhumed from her grave and forced the entire court to swear allegiance to their new queen by kissing the corpse's hand. She was later buried at the Monastery of Alcobaça where her coffin can still be seen, opposite Pedro's so that, according to the legend, at the Last Judgment Pedro and Inês can look at each other as they rise from their graves. Both marble coffins are exquisitely sculpted with scenes from their lives and a promise by Pedro that they would be together até ao fim do mundo (until the end of the world).





Coimbra was the capital of Portugal at this time, that's why these nobility episodes are in that city.
In the place where Inês was murdered, there is a source with a red spot second the legend is the blood of Inês in the stone..



Some photos, of this other historical green space of Coimbra



QUINTA DAS LÁGRIMAS




Inês de Castro sung in Lusíadas

"As ninfas do Mondego, a morte escura
Longo tempo chorando memoraram
E por memória eterna em fonte pura
As Lágrimas choradas transformaram
O nome lhe puseram que ainda dura
Dos amores de Inês que ali passaram
Vede que fresca fonte rega as flores
Que as Lágrimas são água e o nome amores"

Os Lusíadas, canto III.

FADO OF COIMBRA



Fado is an traditional urban music of Coimbra and Lisboa. Are significantly different, particularly in the poetry of each song. The Fado of Coimbra speaks exclusively of the charms of the city, etc

Some exemples


Coimbra é uma lição or also with the name Abril em Portugal [Coimbra is a lesson or April in Portugal]




Coimbra é uma lição
De sonho e tradição
O lente é uma canção
E a Lua a faculdade

O livro é uma mulher
Só passa quem souber
E aprende-se a dizer saudade

Coimbra do choupal
Ainda és Capital
Do amor em Portugal, ainda

Coimbra onde uma vez
Com lágrimas se fez
A história dessa Inês tão linda

Coimbra das canções
Tão meiga que nos pões
Os nossos corações a nu

Coimbra dos doutores
P'ra nós os teu cantores
A Fonte dos Amores és tu

Coimbra é uma lição
De sonho e tradição
O lente é uma canção
E a Lua a faculdade

O livro é uma mulher
Só passa quem souber
E aprende-se a dizer saudade






Coimbra tem mais encanto - [Coimbra has more enchantment]




Coimbra tem mais encanto
Na hora da despedida.
Coimbra tem mais encanto
Na hora da despedida.

Que as lágrimas do meu pranto
São a luz que me dá vida.


Coimbra tem mais encanto

Quem me dera estar contente
Enganar minha dor
Mas a saudade não mente
Se é verdadeiro o amor.

Coimbra tem mais encanto
Na hora da despedida.

Não me tentes enganar
Com a tua formosura
Que para além do luar
Há sempre uma noite escura.

Que as lágrimas do meu pranto
São a luz que lhe dá vida.

Coimbra tem mais encanto.






Serenata Monumental - [Monumental Serenade]




Sentes que um tempo acabou
Primavera de flor adormecida,
Qualquer coisa que não volta que voou,
Que foi um rio, um ar, na tua vida.

E levas em ti guardado
O choro de uma balada
Recordações do passado
O bater da velha cabra

Capa negra de saudade
No momento da partida
Segredos desta cidade
Levo comigo p’rá vida.

Sabes que o desenho do adeus
É fogo que nos queima devagar,
E no lento cerrar dos olhos teus
Fica a esperança de um dia aqui voltar.

E levas em ti guardado…






Do Choupal até à Lapa - [From Choupal to Lapa] (Choupal and Lapa are name areas of the city)





Oh Coimbra do Mondego
E dos amores que eu lá tive
Quem te não viu anda cego
Quem te não ama não vive

Do Choupal até à Lapa
Foi Coimbra meus amores
E sombra da minha capa
Deu no chão abriu em flores
