Arriving in Coimbra, rising scenically from the Rio Mondego which is the 3rd biggest portuguese river, Coimbra is an animated city steeped in history. It was Portugal’s 2nd capital for more than a century and it’s home to one of the oldest and most prestigious university in the world dating the 13th century. Its steeply stacked historic centre dates to Celtic times and is wonderfully atmospheric. On summer evenings, the city’s old stone walls reverberate with the haunting metallic notes of the guitarra (Portuguese guitar) and the full, deep voices of fado singers. Visit the most important places such as Sé Velha, Igreja de Santa Cruz, Jardins da Quinta das Lagrimas.
