A photo tour of Coimbra, Central Portugal

We were lucky enough to enjoy a few days in Coimbra recently and think we may have just found one of our favourite European cities; it is friendly, beautiful, full of fantastic architecture and very inexpensive (though I am sure if you look hard enough you will be able to find more expensive places than we did). But we were able to sit in a city centre square and buy a beer for 1 euro, and eat a three course meal for less than 10 euro per person, including wine, we have never been to a city with these prices.

We toured the city on foot over 3 days. Coimbra is not a big city but there are a number of hills, so you may need to be reasonably fit (I say the word reasonably, as very fit really does not apply to either myself, or my husband!) but with a cafe in every square and what appears to be every street, you can take your time and enjoy your surroundings.

I hope you enjoy our photo tour, and please, if you visit share some photos with the Portugalholidays4u.com Facebook page. (click link)
