VIDEO – Portugal – Coimbra

Last updated Nov 9, 2019 | Published on Jul 5, 2013Portugal, Southern Europe, Videos

“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.

Audio: “Coimbra” performed by the great fado singer Amália Rodrigues
