About Coimbra

Apart from the university, the historical and cultural centre of Coimbra has many interesting places to visit including the Igreja de Santa Cruz (Holy Cross Church) and the Sé Velha (Old Cathedral, 12th Century).
Outside Coimbra there are many tourist attractions - monuments from the Roman
era to the present day, mountains, spas and beaches.
