Jardim botânico

After visiting the monuments that Coimbra has to offer, take the time to walk around, take pictures of nature and enjoy the garden. I recommend

On a showery day, we walked up the hill, after expecting a gate at the foot of the hill. No such luck. So a walk up past the university, and the aqueduct, into the top part of the botanical gardens. Very pretty, even in the winter. Works going on in the hill area , so formal gardens only, but well... More

Like an oasis hidden behind the university the old garden offers refuge from the stone city. Old garden gathers dozen of exotic spices, often hundreds years old, and, if you like, a rope part to jump a clime between them. Both classical and contemporary, well maintained.

Located just behind the famous university, this place is ideal for relax and also for jogging... And there was a little market on Saturday morning, with pumpkins and other actual products :)

The latest remodeling is really being great. Also an excellent chance to have fun at the Skygaden adventure over the top of the trees.

As a nice contrast to the University of Coimbra buildings, walk down over the hill, under the aqueduct and into the botanical gardens. A quiet place to read or watch the birds, far from the traffic of the city. Or, for the adventurous, try the zip line through the lush park canopy.

Although it was raining during our visit, it was still a lovely garden. The trees were fabulous. I didn't realise it wouldbe such a small garden. Unfortunately we could not go into the "greenhouse" as it was having major work carried out. Also due to the weather the sky walk was also closed. But still worth a visit

bit of a let down suspect funds not available to restore former glory but the potential is there.Watch this space.
