Coimbra Private Tour
We'll meet on Largo da Portagem to start our tour of the historic center of Coimbra, the Portuguese university city par excellence. Ready to explore it with an expert guide?
Our first stop will be the Monastery of the Holy Cross, custodian of the relics of the first kings of Portugal. We'll tell you all about who they were on the tour! We'll then head to the Municipal Market and Praça da Republica, and then see two emblematic gardens, the Jardim da Sereia and the Jardim Botánico.
During the tour, we'll also get to know the old University of Coimbra, the most famous building in town. The architectural complex is located on the grounds of the former Royal Palace and was founded in 1290. It's one of the oldest universities in Europe! If you wish, you can also check out the Joanina Library, a real Baroque gem.
We'll continue the tour in the direction of the Old Cathedral of Coimbra, which will surprise you with its incredible Romanesque façade. As we explore, we'll be sure to also tell you more about the city's connection with fado and cross the Arco de Almedina.
