Apartments in Coimbra old town
On a hill overlooking the Mondego, Coimbra old town offers a picturesque tangle of narrow streets and steps.
Like the Sorbonne, Oxford or Salamanca, Coimbra is one of the oldest universities in Europe and and in the streets, you can see the moving black silhouettes of all the students who have perpetuated their traditions.
It is a town with lots of monuments and places to visit, including the University and its fabulous library.
It is impossible to resist such an enchanting town.
So, a quick look at the property market in Coimbra and its surrounding areas: if it is not quite as buoyant as in other parts of Portugal (who doesn't dream of moving there?) you'll find interesting properties for sale ranging from small houses for renovation to luxury villas
in Coimbra itself or the surrounding area.
