Discovering the charms and places of Coimbra

Discovering the charms and places of Coimbra

Coimbra, a city of students, a city where we learn to say saudade, a city full of charms and nooks where sections of the old wall will guide us in an adventure full of history, memories and wisdom. We will start this adventure along the banks of the river Mondego, where we will cross a pedestrian colored bridge, the Pedro and Ines Bridge, towards the Tollgate. On this bridge, you still have the privilege of contemplating a great panoramic view to the magnificent city of Coimbra and surrounding mountains. Along this route, the vast historical, cultural and natural heritage of this city awakens, in each one of us, the desire to set out on an adventure. An adventure to discover the history and mysteries hidden along the streets and staircases, from the downtown area to the high zone of the city, an adventure to get to know the old walled city and the oldest University of Europe, the University of Coimbra.

In about 3 hours you will have the opportunity to get to know all the main attractions of the city, seasoned with legends, famous local characters and a pinch of gastronomy that never hurts. Starting from Largo da Portagem we will go into the Baixa, the lower part of the city, walking for about an hour in the streets that made the history of the city in the last century. We will continue on Avenida Sá da Bandeira, a long avenue characterized by student houses and night clubs. Piazza della Repubblica, Erasmus meeting point, and the Botanical Garden, 13.5 hectares owned by the university, will be the prelude to the visit of the university center. We will end the tour by descending through the narrow streets of Sé Velha, the old cathedral. Our goal is to showcase an Alternative Coimbra and, as always, we will do it our way. An artistic way, like an open-air show. WARNING: We recommend that you get in touch before the tour to check availability.

Coimbra has more charm when it’s time to say goodbye”! While Coimbra has only been classified as World Heritage in 2013, when both its monuments as well as traditions have been recognized by UNESCO (a specialized agency of the UN for Education, Science and Culture), it's safe to say that this city – also known as the “City of Knowledge” - holds unexpected surprises at each corner either by the unique beauty of its historical buildings or even the singular aura lend by a student life filled with centuries of tradition! During this walking tour through the Historic Center we will discover the different reasons that allowed for such classification, going from the Downtown to the Uptown while we unveil its importance in the History of Portugal and the material and immaterial values within the classified perimeter. This visit, conducted by a resident of Coimbra and former student of the oldest institution in the Country – the University – will make you fall in love for this city!
