Coimbra is a city situated in the centre of Portugal halfway between Porto and Lisboa. For many centuries it was the sole University town of the country and hence renowned as cultural and scientific centre of Portugal. Being home to 140k inhabitants Coimbra today is certainly larger than the college campus it once was. While wandering the narrow streets and discovering the beautiful architecture Coimbra never feels like a big city though preserving the urban image like it was seen by the many generations of students which lived and studied here. Take a look for yourself.
