We took a walk from the Praça do Comercio (Central Square) through the old town of Coimbra up to the UNESCO World Heritage Site University of Coimbra. Passing by the statue of Joaquim António de Aguiar we passed through the Almedina Arch.
We passed through a network of steep little alleys and stairs.
Stairs after stairs,
there were little shops along the way even a cannabis restaurant/shop
after more uphill climbs and stairs we reached the Sé Church
views from opposite the church
after the church we headed back uphill 🙁
We reached the Museu Nacional de Machado de Castro
across from the museum were the stairs to the university
Be sure to check out the post on the University of Coimbra here.
A wonderful (albeit very tiring) walk through the old town. Click on the links in the text for more pictures and in depth posts on each stop.
