The Portugal dos Pequenitos

Portugal dos Pequeninos is a mini world for children as well as adults. The enclosure features miniatures of important monuments, houses and an entire mounted city. The replicas of the Portuguese monuments are made to perfection.

The Santa Cruz Monastery and Church

The Monastery located in downtown Coimbra was founded in 1131 by the Order of St. Augustine, but was extensively renovated in the 16th century by D. Manuel I. The main building to visit in the Monastery is the Church of Santa Cruz, since the first two kings of Portugal, D. Afonso Henriques and D. Sancho I. are buried here. At the rear of the Monastery, there is the Manga Garden (or Manga Cloister). Although independent today, the garden was part of the Monastery, dating from the 16th century.

Sé of Coimbra

Built in a Romanesque style, the Old Cathedral dates back to D. Afonso Henriques and deserves a visit, even for those who are not very church fans. There is buried D. Sesnando, a Mozarabic who was governor of the city of Coimbra before D. Afonso Henriques. The Old Cathedral is an imposing building that resembles a small castle. The main façade even has a small front tower at the entrance and two buttresses that give it a robust look. In addition to the interior space, also visit the cloister. Built in a Gothic style, it has a small garden in the center.

Lunch time

You will taste delicious Portuguese food in a typical truly Portuguese restaurant and away from the tourist restaurants.

Café Santa Cruz

Coimbra’s historic showpiece cafe is set in a beautiful high-vaulted former chapel, with stained-glass windows and graceful stone arches. Outside, a terrace grants lovely views over Praça 8 de Maio. Don’t miss the crúzios, egg- and almond-based conventual cakes for which the cafe is famous.

60 min +/-Free time for shops and historic center

After a snack We take a time to walk around the local shops in the historic center of coimbra where the activities give life to the city center.

Universidade de Coimbra Alta & Sofia

It was from the University of Coimbra that the city became known worldwide. It is located in the upper part of Coimbra, which was formerly fortified by the Moorish occupation. It was at this time that the Paço das Escolas began to be built, which includes visits to the Joanina Library, Capela São Miguel and other monuments, such as the University Tower, from where you have a panoramic view of Coimbra.
