with various cafes/bars and places to buy ice cream this is where you want to go. It isn't the most special place of the city, it is modern and in sunny days you will find many activities specially for children. While you walkd through it you may see some curious small atractions. It is very green just next to the... More

As nice as the University area was, my favourite part of Coimbra was this park by the river. You get views of the old town, wildlife, fresh air and an absolutely brilliant pedestrian bridge!

We were just surprised that more people were not out enjoying the gorgeous park since we had such lovely weather. The river views are beautiful and the walk among the trees very tranquil.

There are a small number of play activities for children and often it is possible to hire small cars for them to drive along the pathway. There is a giant bear,... More

go to the park, bring your food and have a lovely picnic. Enough shelter under trees and the mondego is safe to swim.In summer here are inflatable castles for kids (you need to pay a euro or so) and you can rent a canoe or learn to Sub ("canoe on surfboard")

Due to the recently river floods the restaurants and sncks have been closed, but the President of the Town Hall has said that it will soon be open again. We can board a boat that will taken you from one bridge to the other. Nice to take photos.

This park straddles... More
