Geocache Description:


A great view… Coimbra
Português English
Coimbra Coimbra
Sede da mais antiga universidade de Portugal, Coimbra é uma cidade sobretudo animada pelos estudantes que vivem e estudam aqui, mas está também cheia de monumentos e tesouros históricos e conta com um comércio movimentado e a presença vibrante do Mondego, o "Rio dos Poetas" como os habitantes locais lhe chamam orgulhosamente, oferecendo ao visitante a beleza das suas margens e alimentando os campos férteis do vale circundante. Coimbra oferece muitos outros sítios a explorar e um vasto calendário de eventos culturais e de diversão, mas torna-se especialmente apetecível em Maio, quando os estudantes celebram o final do ano académico com a tradicional Queima das Fitas, enchendo as ruas de música e animação esfuziante.
This city holds a special place in the hearts of all the Portuguese. Rich in its history and said to be the oldest seat of learning in Portugal with a University founded on the 13th of August in 1290 by King Dinis. This makes it one of the oldest in the world. Six of Portugal’s Kings were born here and in 1139 until 1256 it was the chosen capital of the country. The original name in the Roman period was Aeminium, and it later developed under the influence of the greater nearby town of Conimbriga. This latter place is now a large archaeological site of great interest with a museum to display the findings from the diggings. At first sight the town appears more devoted to commerce than learning but the skyline above the lower part of the city suggest its real purpose.
