Let's start making our list of what to do in Coimbra, and begin with one of the most famous religious monuments in the city. This is the chapel of San Miguel, the chapel of the University of Coimbra, which has a stunning altar.

The .\university is one of the most famous places to visit in Coimbra. Founded by King Dionysius the Labrador, it has a long history. Other things to see in Coimbra are the Sé Nova and Sé Velha, known as the New Cathedral and the Old Cathedral. The New Cathedral of Coimbra is located in the main square near the university and was originally the church of the Jesuit College. The top of the facade is Baroque, and the bottom is Mannerist.

Construction began after the Battle of Ourique and here you can see the tomb of Sesnando, Count of Coímbra.
