University of Coimbra Reviews
Climb the stairs through the arch in the centre of town to see the reason that you are visiting Coimbra. The university has a beautiful campus, and the graffiti is interesting (and some funny), even..... more »
This university is definitely worth a visit, but I would suggest taking a taxi up. We walked down without any problems but we were glad we took a taxi up the hill. more »
Beautiful place with outstanding library which is totally a must see if you are travelling to Portugal. Visiting system is quite strange but they have student discount.
It’s very well kept older craftsmanship when visiting the royal chapel and library inside. This is a real university with students around the place.
