So on the 10th day, we hit the road again... and again found some Roman ruins to detour for. These are some of the best preserved ruins in Portugal. Conimbriga. This is a partially excavated Roman village. And I know to some it just seems like a pile of rocks, but it was pretty amazing looking around
Then we were off to Coimbra itself. It's known for the oldest university in Portugal. The University of Coimbra. The city is charming and we had the most amazing rooftop deck in our hotel.
We went up to the university where we could tour the chapel, the library, and the palace. Unfortunately for me, they won't let you take photos in the library. So the interior is a picture I found online.
This is the library.
Then on to the palace...
|The Grand Examination room|
|Ceilings in the Palace|
We decided to skip the "new cathedral" so we could visit the "old cathedral"
Last of all, some charming streets and the VIEW.
On to Porto!
