Things to do

-Monuments: Among Coimbra’s most celebrated monuments is the Biblioteca Joanina at the Paco das Escolas. You don’t have to be a bookworm to fall for the charms of this beautiful library. Its construction began in 1717 under the watchful eye of architect Gaspar Ferreira. With ceilings covered in intricate murals and lavishly decorated doorways, it’s little wonder this centuries-old library is considered one of the prettiest in the world.

-Ancient churches: As evidence of the strong bond between religion and Coimbra’s history there are several medieval churches dotting this part of Portugal. The Igreja e Mosteiro is one of the more fascinating of these edifices and has been made a national monument. Visitors will be enchanted by the lovely arches and ribbed ceiling of this 12th century monastery. The Old Cathedral of Coimbra is one of Portugal’s most important Romanesque churches.

-Museums: More on this region’s heritage can be found in the museums of Coimbra. Materials used to teach Mathematics and other subjects in the 17th century can be seen in the Cience Museum. These materials mainly consist of Azulejos, decorated square tiles. The Museu Nacional de Machado de Castro contains a lot on Roman history.

-Concerts: To get a taste of Portuguese culture, residents of Arganil holiday homes will want to visit the fado houses of Coimbra. These are places where they can enjoy live music by talented local artists as well as rub shoulders with locals in a lively atmosphere. One of the more popular of these establishments is the aCapella on Rua do Corpo. As they snap their fingers to the captivating tunes, revellers can also feast on bitings and sip their choice poison.

-Nature: Coimbra has its fair share of greenery and those who are nature lovers or just need the verdant serenity of trees to relax can visit the Choupal National Forest. Here they can walk through the trails at a leisurely pace drinking in the peaceful ambiance or stop at the cafeteria and have a drink. Another place in this locality that can serve the same purpose is the Jardim Botanico. This park is particularly popular with romantic couples.

Although we had superb weather for November, the outside temperature dropped in the evenings but the heating in the house worked well and we were so happy to have the log fire. Our hosts made sure that we were supplied with plenty of logs as well as ensuring the heating system was on. Very quiet place surrounded in fruit, nuts and olive trees with good access to surrounding places of interest. We had our little 15 month old daughter with us and I can say that she was so happy there. There was a well equipped play area, cot and high chair - perfect. The furnishings and decorations were very tasteful and it was a pleasure to be in the house of an evening with the fire raging.
