Coimbra, which is in the midsection of Portugal, is known as a university town. It does have a major university, but there is so much more to the city. It also has old and new cathedrals, nearby ruins, a lively market, a riverfront walk, and some gorgeous scenery.
I enjoyed my time in Coimbra. And as has become my wont since starting this travel journal, I wrote about my days there. You can find links to the relevant journal entries below. That is to say, you can find them if you aren’t incredibly lazy. I mean, come on. How much effort does it take to scroll down a darned webpage? You can do it. I know you can.
And once you get to the links, why don’t you click on one and read the post? Or maybe click on and read them all. It won’t kill you. At least, probably not. Then again, you never know.
