Coimbra, the student city

With history on the tip of our tongue, we cover the streets and alleys of one of the major cities of our country, having previously been the capital of Portugal.
“Coimbra was then the first capital of the Kingdom of Portugal, and it was from here that the expansion to the South set off, in a heroic and ferocious recapture of the territory which, infamously, had been invaded and taken by the Berbers and Arabs.” A.M.

A city made eternal in the hearts of those who studied there, in one of the oldest universities in Europe. A hill which rolls out, slowly, until it reaches the river, and pours the tears and love of Pedro and Inês.
Accompanied by a nostalgia written in verse, we stroll through rocks and viewing points, and mingle with students wearing capes and cassocks.
A city full of stories, and music that spreads all sorts of feelings through our skin.
World Heritage Site since June 2013

Finally, back to Porto, we invite you to a sensory journey across the country through aromas and flavours; premium olive oils from all different regions of Portugal, and lastly, a 10-year-old Port Wine, aged in oak casks.
Cheers; these are on us.
