Coimbra Things to Do: 150 reviews and 317 photos
I was told by an italian friend that I had to see the historical library and the University-area in Coimbra, so we did. And we weren't disappointed. After having some trouble finding an empty parking-place we found out that we were actually close to the historical centre.
My friend had told me that maybe I had to stay in the line and wait for hours to get inside the library, but lucky enough I didn't have to do that. Unfortunately it was because the library was closed...
But the yard around the University was really nice, and since it's situated so high I was able to see big parts of the town from there.
The library itself is said to contain big amounts of old books. And by "old" I mean really old... I don't know if it would have been interested for me, but still I'm a bit sad I couldn't enter. At least to find out how it looked.
But if you have the luck to get there when it's not closed, take a look! And if you don't want to spend hours in the line, you could just sit down at the University-area and relax for a while.
Directions: On the high point of Coimbra. It's plenty of informations-signs all over the town, so you shouldn't have any problems to find it.
