Tour description

As the sunlight begins to dim, we'll meet at the historic Iron Gate. From there, under the shelter of the sunset, we will begin the free night tour of Coimbra, a tour of its streets, full of stories. Discover the most emblematic places of the most famous university city in Portugal with this guided tour. Coimbra will captivate you at first sight! We will admire the University of Coimbra, one of the oldest in Europe. We will continue with the tour taking you to the New Cathedral, important in traditions and academic life. We continue to the old bishop's house, which today is the National Museum of Machado de Castro. We will go to the Old Cathedral, on whose facade we will see that it is one of the best preserved Romanesque buildings in the country. You will love it! We will know the history of fado, the traditional music of Coimbra. And it is that this type of song is closely linked to the university life of the beautiful Portuguese town. To finish, the Monastery of Santa Cruz.
Did you know that the remains of the first two kings of Portugal rest in this temple?
