Coimbra Things to Do: 150 reviews and 317 photos


This arch is the city's ancient gateway. Built originally by the Moors, it now serves as the gateway into Old Coimbra and leads up the steep steps to the university. You can really tell the difference between the areas below the gate and the area above it. It's like stepping through a time machine and into the past when you are walking upward.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
