Museum
“This great museum is a highlight of central Portugal. Housed in a 12th-century bishop's palace, it stands over the city's ancient Roman forum, remains of which can be seen in the maze of spooky tunnels under the building – the cryptoporticus. Once you emerge from this, you can start on the fascinating art collection, which runs the gamut from Gothic religious sculpture to 16th-century Flemish painting and ornately crafted furniture. Particularly spectacular is the vast recreation of a chapel from the Convento de São Domingos, but highlights abound. These include a section of the delicate cloister of São João de Almedina and some exquisite alabaster pieces from England. Sculptural works trace the development of Portuguese sculpture from the 11th century, showing how the arrival of Renaissance masters from across Europe paved the way for a distinctive Coimbra tradition. You can admire terracotta figures from a 16th-century Last Supper by the mysterious French artist Hodart and some stunning panels by the Flemish painter Quentin Metsys. A collection of gold monstrances, furniture and Moorish-influenced pieces is almost too much by the time you reach it.”

Lieu de musique
“Étroitement lié aux traditions académiques, le Fado de Coimbra a émergé spontanément au sein des groupes d’étudiants, qui en se déplaçant à la ville pour aller à l’Université, transportaient avec eux leurs guitares portugaises. La tradition s’est perpétuée jusqu’à nos jours, chanté exclusivement par des hommes, le Fado de Coimbra implique une rigueur vestimentaire. Des groupes de musiciens et chanteurs portant le «traje» universitaire de pantalon, soutane et une cape de couleur noire conférant solennité au moment, ils chantent la nuit dans les places et les rues de la ville, scène privilégié de Coimbra.”

Library
“The university's baroque library is Coimbra's headline sight. Named after King João V, who sponsored its construction between 1717 and 1728, it features a remarkable central hall decorated with elaborate ceiling frescoes and huge rosewood, ebony and jacaranda tables. Towering gilt chinoiserie shelves hold some 40,000 books, mainly on law, philosophy and theology. Curiously, the library also houses a colony of bats to protect the books – they eat potentially harmful insects. Note admission to the library is strictly regulated, with entry in groups at set times. At your allotted time – given when you buy your ticket – you enter through a side door and wait to be admitted to the main hall. While waiting you can peek down into the cells of the Prisão Acadêmica.”

Lieu de musique
“LISTEN TO FADO, PORTUGALS HERITAGE MUSIC Fado is traditional folk music originating in Portugal. Melancholy by nature, the music includes instruments like guitars and mandolins with one Fadista singing poetic lyrics related to darker elements of love, death and sadness. Many Fadistas perform in restaurants so you can get a great meal while enjoying this moving music. The Cultural House “aCapella” is housed in a 14th century chapel in the Jewish quarter of Coimbra, and offers a pleasant terrace, bar and tapas service. (www.acapella.com.pt) “Fado ao Centro” is a cultural centre where you can watch a rehearsal or ask questions. (www.fadoaocentro.com/)”
