Coimbra is known for being the place of the tragic love of D. Pedro and D. Inês, who was murdered in the surroundings, namely in Quinta das Lágrimas, but also for being Portugal's most ancient university city and one of the first in Europe. In the upper town, Coimbra still preserves intricate narrow streets dating back to the Middle Ages, along with the University's modern buildings. In this area you will find the so called Republics, students' houses that were for decades the centre of libertarian traditions and students' protests. From the upper side, you can have a view over the rest of the city and the river. Pátio das Escolas, Couraça de Lisboa or Penedo da Saudade are some of those mythical places. The city is quite different near the Mondego river. This is the trade area where most of the services are based in. Pedestrian streets Ferreira Borges and Visconde da Luz are downtown's main streets. In the immediate surroundings you will find Baixinha, an intricate set of narrow streets and crossroads filled with traditional trade and entertainment which make it particularly entertainment which make it particularly charming.There is a lot to see on the left bank of the river. First of all, Santa Clara-a-Velha monastery that has been renovated after centuries of being submerged in water and mud. Quite close to it, there is Santa Clara-a-Nova and Portugal dos Pequenitos, conceived by Architect Cassiano Branco. This theme park has been the delight of several several generations since 1940.
