  • Probably the best place in Coimbra to pull away from the noise and observe nature. Silence and calm is felt are a way to relax without equal. Just a pity not to see any kind of improvements after so many years.

  • I have the best impression of the mata do choupal, a mata, wide spaces with some infrastructure for sports such as horse riding, tennis court, several trails for hiking, mountain biking race. Some Rails located next to Mondego River where you can enjoy the pleasant sound of the River, others in the middle of the forest to hear the singing of the birds, other trails along the canal of the River Mondego, an area more ensoalheirada about me more enjoyable for cooler days. An ideal place to stroll with children, putting them in contact with nature. There's a café, spaces for picnics, pleasant areas for children's parties. Recommend this space to the full, very very nice. Attend with accuracy, as much for coffee in the middle of nature and hiking as much alone as accompanied with friends. I've realized my daughter's birthday party. and this is now a teenager make many walks accompanied by great conversations. A space also very nice to read a good book.

  • For those who like to walk in the middle of nature is without a doubt a place to visit. Has a number of walking trails. You can see birds of prey and hear the birds, well near the city of Coimbra. The woods are well taken care of. Ideal for those with small children and even to make a picnic!

Where to stay in Coimbra

Indulge in the medieval splendor of Coimbra by booking a hotel in the city's historical hilltop and hillside central area, which is home to the majority of its hotels and guesthouses. By staying right in the middle of the Old Town, you'll have medieval monasteries, Renaissance homes, and Baroque halls right at your doorstep. You'll also be within walking distance of the city's famed university complex. Alternatively, try staying in one of the center's youth hostels, which offer shared rooms, lockers, breakfast, and a comfortable bed at a fraction of the cost of an upscale hotel. These accommodations also give you a good base from which you can experience the city's student-fueled nightlife. To get away from the mainstream tourist center a bit, opt for a hotel or bed and breakfast in the quieter residential neighborhoods east of the university.
