The next stop is Alcobaša. The city is most famous for its monastery. I didn't take too much photos there because I just stayed for a few hours and the weather wasn't so nice.

The monastery:

@Cbr: I didn't upload all photos I took and I didn't take photos everywhere I went in Coimbra, but to be honest I was a little bit disappointed of the city. Coimbra has 140,000 inhabitants but the city more felt like a city with 20,000 inhabitants for me. The streets were very empty and everywhere I went I always came back to the same places. But that is only my personal opinion.

The city were I live in, Heidelberg, is like the German counterpart of Coimbra. It is a very important student city, it also has the oldest university in Germany and it even also has 140,000 inhabitants, exactly like Coimbra. But it is a totally different city.

Perhaps I was in Coimbra at holidays or something like that, but the city was a little bit like a ghost town. And most of the university buildings were really ugly. Sorry but I really don't want to hurt your feelings!
But please tell me which are the most important places?

Thanks, Fern! Just my subjective impression of my visit in Coimba. Nevertheless it is definitely worth a day trip!

The next town I visited was Batalha. The main sight is the Monastery of Santa Maria da Vitˇria, also UNESCO World Heritage:

I wrote that because Cbr Domes is an ardent lover of his city

There's a lot of work to do in Coimbra, some currently underway or planned, but perhaps you didn't get the chance to visit the nicer parts of town, which are not as historic.

Don't get me wrong: it is definitely a nice city! But not the vibrant student city I expected.

@Cbr: I think I visited the most places of your thread. The only two really important places I missed (which was really stupid) were the "Praca 8 de Maio", which looks really nice with the church and the monastery and the "Palacio dos Grilos". I stood in front of it but I didn't go inside the courtyard (which looks really amazing on the photos). Maybe it was closed on the day I visited Coimbra!?

What do you think about the "newer" university buildings in Coimbra? They look to me like they should have been built in the 1930s. Right?
