Full description
Admire this historic and atmospheric beautiful city, which is set in the beautiful landscape of the eastern bank of the Mondego River. This city is a multicolored collage of buildings spanning nearly a millennium.

Visit the city center, explore narrow streets that hide love stories of thousands of students, see gardens, convents, and monasteries. Listen to the scary metallic notes of the Portuguese guitar and the deep voices of singers of fado. 

Coimbra is also the site of a unique event in Portuguese history, the forbidden love story between Pedro (the king's son) and Inês de Castro (a commoner). This story is a frequent subject of art, music, and drama.
