Coimbra Private Walking Tour

Coimbra is the home to the country’s oldest and most prestigious university, dated from 1290 which makes it also one of the oldest in the World. It's the old capital of Portugal and a riverfront city steeped in history and architecture. Discover the university tradition that inspired Harry Potter's robes and partly Hogwarts. Admire its steeply stacked historic center dates to Moorish times, with its dark cobbled lanes and monumental cathedral. “Coimbra is a lesson”, says the famous Fado song that echoes through the eras. You will find out the origins of this Portuguese famous traditional music, all in the city where the founder of the Kingdom of Portugal was born.
