What to expect

Get ready to discover one of the treasures of Portugal: Coimbra the ex-capital city of the country offers a wide range of architecture and history: from Roman to the Middle Age. During this private experience, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy a walking tour of the city accompanied by an expert guide that will show you "the other side of the city", located across the Mondego River.

"The other side" of Coimbra is well-known because of the history of Santa Isabel, patroness of the city, who was queen born in Spain that abandoned everything to those in poverty in Portugal and became a Franciscan tertiary. The guide will show you the beautiful monastery where the queen used to live as well as the tomb.

Don't miss the opportunity to learn all the hidden secrets of Coimbra during this amazing experience, for example, the tragic history of Dom Pedro and Dona Ines the noblewoman that was murdered since King Alfonso didn't approve the relationship between her and his son Pedro.
