Intelligence and innovation. History and heritage. Strength and determination. These word pairings perfectly describe Coimbra, the formidable city on the banks of the River Mondego. Home to the illustrious University of Coimbra, the city has been synonymous with academia for nearly a millennium.
The Romans and Moors were present to see Coimbra built, while the Portuguese royal family ensured that it would thrive; in fact, for 124 years, Coimbra served as Portugal`s capital. When you visit, you`ll find that Coimbra`s influence-exerting days are far from over: thousands arrive each year to attend the top Portuguese-language school in the world, and even larger crowds find themselves drawn to Coimbra`s UNESCO World Heritage buildings and attractions.
