    It is a park and viewpoint of the city of Coimbra, built in 1849, where you will find the eastern part of the city. There are several boulders with commemorative plaques of events linked to academic life, as well as poetry. The oldest date of 1855. The "living room courses" and "the Poets" are two spaces a must-see.

    The penedo da saudade is one of the main historical sites of the city. Has several tombstones of alumni of the University, and review old alumni poems talking about the memories of the times in Coimbra. In addition, it has a wonderful sunset.

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.
