Thanks for the pics, I've never seen images of this city before.
Like in Porto and Lisbon the oldtown looks very nice.

Btw: This should go to 'Cityscapes and Skyline Photos'. Urban Showcase is only for your own pics.

200mil... mais um bocadinho e supera o porto, loool 150 mil é mais real ruben... e os 500.000 é numa de região metropolitana, no mesmo sentido em que terias braga na zona de influência do porto...

mas é bem, o teu thread tá a ter algum sucesso... sim senhor!

então pessoal, não é sitio para falar em tuguês.

Nice pics, Coimbra is such a fantastic city!
But you should put some more photos from Sé Nova, Sá da Bandeira, Quinta das Lágrimas, Sta Clara-a-Velha and Emidio Navarro!

I don't care who is bigger or smaller, i just care about the true and you are lying.

- You are saying metropolitan area of Coimbra have a population of 500 000.

- When Coimbra district have in fact not more than 450 000 hab in 3 947 km².

- This gives a 112/km² density for a metropolitan area.

- We all can see in this next image the size Coimbra district comparing with Portugal map.



- To conclude, what ruben.briosa is trying to say, is all that red zone in the map is the "metropolitan area of Coimbra".

- Anyone agree with him?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coimbra_%28district%29


------------
PS: I'm not from Braga, but i will reply with your own arguments:

Metropolitan Area of Braga
- Population: 831 368 (2x more)
- Area: 2 673 km² (1.5x smaller)
- Density: 311/km² (3x more than Coimbra)
