Description

After this tour, you will know why “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 Historical Center of Coimbra 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 and feel yourself as part of the academic traditions as someone who had already lived them intensely!

SUGGESTION: If you want to get to know more about the University history, traditions and its universal importance throughout the centuries, this is a great tour to combine with the "Joanina Library & University of Coimbra VIP ACCESS"! Book both and have 10% direct discount!
