About Coimbra

Activities

Have a walk up to the top of University Hill from the Mondego river (one of the three great rivers of Portugal), a gorgeous view.

Fado

There are two kinds of fado in Portugal: Fado from Lisbon and Fado from Coimbra, neither should be missed. [Fado,nostalgic songs accompanied by Portuguese guitar]

  • Coimbra Fado group Verdes Anos

Student life

There is always a lot going on in the student community, go and find out what's up. There are two student festivals held every year:

  • Festa das Latas
  • Queima das Fitas

Get lost

The center of Coimbra is a great place to get lost, Coimbra is a small city but it is full of interesting spots. Museums(Machado de Castro),Torre d`Anto,etc.

Food

Having a meal is not really a problem in Coimbra, since the city has a lots of restaurants, some typical, in old city (Baixa).

Budget

Three reasonably big shopping centers serve the standard fast food meals you can find everywhere. They are located in key places in the city, but not necessarily close to the tourist attractions of the city.

  • Menu Verde (address=) (inside the Galerias Topázio, Loja 3, go up to the 2nd floor),  239-840-207. Open Mon-Fri 9am-5pm. Delicious ovo-lacto vegetarian food. €1.50 for soup and 5.50 a main dish (July 2012).

Mid-range

  •    Molho de Brocolos, Avenida Sa da Bandeira 33/35 (Around to the right and at the back of the 2nd floor of Galerias Avenida). Organic vegan food. Location isn't great tucked away at the back of the 2nd floor of a slightly run-down shopping centre, but the food and the staff totally make up for it. €5-8 mains.
  • Fangas Mercearia Bar, Rua Fernandes Tomas, 45-49,  +351 93 409 36 36. Tue - Thu: 12:00-01:00, Fri - Sat: 12:00-02:00. Small but tasty dishes, rich in flavour mainly because they use local products, good vegetarian even vegan choice, nice selection of Portuguese wines, surprising(ly good) desserts.
  • Italia, the Italian restaurant in the city park and over the river, very close to the Santa Clara bridge (very popular with tourists). You have a lot of outside tables, if the weather permits, and the food is prepared by Italian cooks. It's not very expensive either.
  • Zé Manel dos Ossos Beco do Forno, 12. A unique atmosphere inside the restaurant is responsible for this fame, but the food is good too. The walls of the restaurant are filled with small pieces of paper, with writings from clients. Be aware that it is quite a small space, so there's a big probability that you won't find a table. Generous portions and a charcoal grill that makes a big difference compared with the electric ones. Try the bone marrow stew (from which the restaurant takes its name) or the grilled seabass or a great dish of stewed octopus and potatoes.
  • Restaurante Vitória is in the city centre and has traditional dishes suchs as "cozido à portuguesa", "bacalhau assado na brasa", "chafana". Nice and quiet restaurant.
  • Salão Brasil in the "baixinha" (downtown) center. A unique room, with huge windows and very spacious, invites for a relaxed meal. The food is great with some unique dishes from around the country - like "Vitela Maronesa" and "Secretos de Porco preto". Vegetarian meals.
  • Taberna. If you want to try 'chanfana', one of the most famous dishes of the region, you should definitely go to this restaurant, close to the football stadium. This restaurant is specialized in a limited amount of dishes, but the quality of the food is just amazing. Go there at night, and try the 'chanfana', even though you may not have a clue about what this is. This is the place for those who really appreciate good food. Don't go too late at night, because it can be a little crowded. The restaurant is very good, and it's located in the most densely populated area of the city.
  • Toscana is another very popular Italian restaurant, close to the new bridge. The decoration is great, with a lot of pictures from Florence, Venice, Rome. The quality of the food is quite high. It's definitely not your standard pizza...
  • O Telheiro, Rua do Padrao. On the down side it is very hard to get a table (but you will get one if you wait) and it is out of the center of Coimbra (approx. 5 mins from Coimbra B train station).
  • Wok - oriental cuisine of very good level on the opposite side of the river, between the new (Santa Isabel) and pedestrian (Pedro e Ines) briges.
  • Farinha de Milho in Anca, a beautiful restaurant in a beautiful setting with beautiful traditional Portuguese food. This restaurant is in an old water mill in a small village just 10 minutes drive from Coimbra.
  • Rua de Azeiteiras (a street in Baixa) has lots of nice traditional restaurants.
  • Joao do Leitoes one of the most typical restaurants of the city. Its main dish is a roasted piglet served whole with potatoes and salad.

Splurge

  • Quinta das Lágrimas hotel's restaurant may be the best restaurant in the city. It's the most expensive place in the city though... Be sure to wear your best clothes if you go there. It's a very fancy place.
  • Gengibre is modern and elegant restaurant near the Santo Antonio dos Olivais church

Drinks

  • There is a lot of quality wine production in the regions surrounding Coimbra, try some "Bairrada" wine.
  • Don't miss the "licor beirao", a national sweet liquor drink born and made in the region.
  • Try the different varieties of firewater "Agua-Ardente". One is made only from grapes while the other is made from mixed fruit. Each have a unique and different after taste.

Cafes

  • Cafe de Santa Cruz is a historical cafe next to the "Igreja de Santa Cruz" (Saint Cross Church).
  • The bars in the new City Park are open all day long.

Night out

A warning, the students in this town seem to prefer Tuesday or Thursday night to go out. On weekends, this city is sleepy as many students go home to their families.

  • a Capela bar, were you can find yourself surrounded by Portuguese guitar tunes and "Fado de Coimbra" get a grip of this so traditional local culture.
  • Diligencia Bar - The oldest Fado House in Coimbra. Typical night bar were you'll find Fado de Coimbra and all kind of Portuguese tradicional music.
  • Salao Brazil - A restaurant but also a bar, most worthy during weekends, with - mostly - free jazz, folk and fado concerts.
  • Bar AAC - Academic Association Bar, entrance sometimes limited to University students.
  • The bars in the "Parque Verde do Mondego" are a good place to go for a drink during Spring and Summer.
  • The bars around the "Praca da Republica" are full of the spirit of the students of the University, mainly during weekdays in Autumn, Winter and Spring.
  • Bar Quebra Costas, R. Quebra Costas 45, 3000 Coimbra, Portugal. Nice location on the stairs leading to Se Velha. Open air concerts.

Clubs

  • NB - Disco near Praca da Republica.
  • Theatrix - Disco in Av. Sa da Bandeira.
  • Noites Longas - Disco near Praca da Republica, alternative sounding (metal, rock).
