"Distrito Coimbra" Top 5 Page for this destination Portugal Favorite Tip by micas_pt

Portugal General: 321 reviews and 294 photos


Favorite thing: Coimbra, the capital of this district, is a students? city with a long tradition in universities. Apart from this unique city, in this district you should also visit Conimbriga ? fabulous roman ruins ? and Lousã, a quiet village. Near Lousã village are the mountain/hills ? Serra da Lousã ? which have fabulous green landscapes and are so quiet and peaceful. Another village worth visiting is Luso, famous for its thermal waters. Bucaço has a magnificent palace that today houses a hotel (expensive), and while visiting this magical place you may also go to the Car Museum. In Mealhada you should eat the famous special piglet, I?m sure you?ll love it.
