Coimbra?

Jump to last reply

I'm debating whether to make a quick overnight stop in Coimbra when taking the train from Porto to Lisbon. It gets mentioned a lot in guidebooks, etc. I've read a lot about the place, here is a lot of vague talk about the university, but not why anyone would want to go out his way to see it. I've looked at youtube videos and don't see very much. I still have no feel for whether Coimbra is worth the bother. And it is a bit of bother since, the train station is a bit removed from town and the hotels appear sadly deficient. It also costs me half a day that could be spent in Porto.

So what's the reason to go there?
