Coimbra is a university city located on the River Mondergo in central Portugal. The university is one of the most older in Europe, it was established in 1290 by King Dinis I. Coimbra is divided into 2 parts, the Baixa or old city and the Alta, the modern part of the city. Along the historical buildings and sites, travelers also taste a bit of that academic atmosphere. Now, however, Coimbra is better known for its broad avenues, wonderful regional cuisine, and fine architecture. Overleaping Coimbra, houses seem to be set aside on the hillside climbing towards the ancient Royal Palace - the building that holds the city's acclaimed University. The Mondego River ponders Coimbra's brilliance in its calm waters. The riverbank is outlined by a wide boulevard, perfect for a calm walk in the company of the green trees that provide shade for the sunny hours. The clock tower at the top of the hills marks the hours of everyday, the most peculiar one being during sunset when a copper light enlightens the walls of the city.
