The university town of Coimbra exudes modern flair while embracing its roots as the medieval capital of Portugal. Developed over several centuries, the city has several historical buildings with impressive architecture on the east bank of Rio Mondeg. The cafe and bar scene make Coimbra lively, and the city also supports intellectual and political influences. The presence of both forces creates a special bohemian atmosphere in the historical center. Live music often fills the streets, especially during the Queima das Fitas, a festival in early May. Coimbra is in Coimbra District. Plan how to spend your time in Coimbra and other destinations in Portugal using our Portugal online sightseeing planner.
