Legend says Dona Inês de Castro met her grisly end in the gardens of this private estate. It’s now a deluxe hotel, although anyone can take a turn about the grounds and track down the Fonte dos Amores (Lovers’ Fountain), which reputedly marks the spot where the prince's unwitting mistress was struck down. Also note the sequoia tree planted by the Duke of Wellington.
