Est. reading time:

This video is from Coimbra, the ancient university town in central Portugal. Some scenes are from the university and some from the town centre.

“University of Coimbra – Alta and Sofia” is no. 1387 on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. We found the old buildings more interesting than the edifices erected in the 1950’s in a rather heavy fascist style. In addition to tour groups there were actually students attending summer classes, making this more than a museum even in early July. In addition this video shows some scenes from the town of Coimbra.
