Located in the center of Portugal between Lisbon and Porto, Coimbra lays on the banks of the river Mondego. Famous for its University, the oldest in Portugal and one of the oldest in Europe and classified as UNESCO World Heritage, including also Rua da Sofia and the upper part of the City.

There are several monuments from those times that display the splendor of Romanesque art. In the shopping area and area of historic cafés in the City Centre, visitors really must see the Monastery of Santa Cruz, which houses the tomb of the first King of Portugal, Afonso Henriques, and on the other bank, the Monastery of Santa Clara-a-Velha, recovered and rescued from the waters of the river that invaded it over the centuries. The Sé Velha (Old Cathedral), too, on whose steps the monumental serenade takes place in which students dressed in black capes sing the Coimbra Fado performed with the traditional Guitarra de Coimbra (a kind of Portuguese guitar originating in Coimbra), and sang by male voices. His lyrics often refers to a serenate to a woman or to the city.

But there is much more to see. The Machado de Castro National Museum contains the Roman Cryptoporticus among a collection of great value that introduces you to the history of the city. There are many gardens not to be missed, too, such as those at Choupal, those at Quinta das Lágrimas, the setting for the story of D. Pedro and Inês de Castro, and the Botanical Gardens. Children (of all ages) will love Portugal dos Pequenitos (Portugal for the Little Ones), a park that reproduces the main Portuguese monuments on a miniature scale.

The modern part of the city is located as soon as you get away a little from the historical center: a modern park with terraces, bars and restaurants by the river, a wonderful pedestrian bridge over Mondego River, huge malls, and everything you can expect from an important European modern city.
