Jóia da Coroa: i went to grab a cup of tea with Queen Amelia

Jóia da Coroa. Okay, not actually. We have centuries of existence tearing us apart, but the truth is the Queen Amélia herself had already been in this place. So, i kinda feel we grabbed a cup of tea together, right? At least, in my dreams.

 

Anyway, what nowadays is a tea room was in the past a famous goldsmith’s shop called Alliança. That’s why the spot is so opulent and feels like it was decorated by Marie Antoinette herself, with lots of gold carving, crystal mirrors, velvet chairs, fine porcelain, and chandeliers. And, of course, delicious cakes and macarons.

It’s easy to imagine the ladies of society grabbing a cup of tea and eating a piece of cake while telling each others gossips.

By now, i must confess that i live in a limbo: i love this palace decor but my heart also loves the minimal decor. Anyways, what i love the most about palace decor is the sumptuousness of how it makes us travel in time. You see, it’s easy to imagine the ladies of society grabbing a cup of tea and eating a piece of cake while telling each other’s gossips. At that time women don’t even work.

Of course, it means that it’s quite easy to feel like a princess there too, as the tea is absolutely perfect and the waiter, Pedro, is so nice and helpful.

 

However, Jóia da Coroa is not just about cakes and tea. Upstairs one can find beautiful gold, silver and filigree jewelry and porcelain pieces as well waiting to find an owner who brings them back to life.

 

So, if you happen to be in Porto and you like palaces and this kind of things, i would highly suggest you grab a cup of tea there. I don’t promise it will be cheap but i do promise that is a unique experience.
