Coimbra District

4.3
Historic Sites · Universities & Schools · Landmarks
Located in the fertile central part of Portugal, Coimbra District has always drawn foreigners, although for centuries they were mostly unwelcome invaders. Settled by Celts and subsequently conquered by the Romans, Visigoths, and Moors, the region boasts a wealth of ancient sites preserving the last traces of these long-gone cultures. The city of Coimbra, home to most of the district's notable attractions, served as Portugal's medieval capital for over a century. Today, the city's historical Old Town is the region's top tourist destination, noted for its rich architectural heritage and picturesque riverside setting. Coimbra also makes an ideal base for day trips to the nearby Roman ruins, Portugal's largest archaeological site. Take stress off the schedule by using our Portugal trip itinerary planner.
