Coimbra Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Dominated by the old university's high tower, Coimbra clings to a hill and is bathed by the Mondego river. This place is not without its charms and poets have praised them many times. You must see Coimbra from the Santa Clara Bridge or from the top of the Vale do Inferno belvedere. The town has two distinct areas, the university district (upper town) and the shopping district (lower town).
