Nice old cathedral. Located in city centre. Provides information about old history. For full visit they charge around 2 euro / person which I think is worth.

Old spirits are around you in this spectacular venue. A historically and architecturally interesting church and cloister to visit.

While in the beautiful city of Coimbra the Monastery da Santa Cruz is not to be missed. The cost is 3 Euro and well worth to see the interior. There are several sections on the tour, and we were lucky enough to make the 11am...More
