Coimbra and surroundings

The Elegant University City

The medieval city of Coimbra has been the capital of Portugal for over a hundred years, located on the banks of the Mondego River and home to one of the oldest universities in the Portuguese territory, the Universidad de Coimbra. The city is full of Baroque buildings and is certainly a place that offers a lot to visitors, do not miss the walk in the historic center or enjoy a little cool in one of its elegant gardens. You can treat yourself to a mini river cruise or taste the pastis de Santa Clara or arrufadas, typical sweets of Coimbra, in one of the Baixa cafés. Younger tourists will like the Portugal dos Pequenitos, the attraction of the city of Coimbra dedicated to children. It is a theme park with miniature reconstructions of Portugal's most famous cities and attractions.
