star-5

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.

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.
