“History and architecture”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2015

The informational videos at the beginning of the trip highlight the different phases of the structure. Although you don't get to see much here, the price is not bad to view the city of Coimbra over some rooftops.

“A fine place to enjoy looking at”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2015

Almedina Tower is a perfect yet small place to stay and enjoy looking at. It would deserve a bit more information in sight and perhaps a bench to sit at. But is a secure symbol of Coimbra traditions and history.

“Old Gated Tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2015

This attraction is part of the old city walls. You will pass under it en route to visit the old cathedral and university in Coimbra. It is at the lower part of the city where the climb up starts.

“Worth visiting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2015

Part of the old walls, a nice and well kept example of the old city.
Go through this gate going out of the velha se and down to the new centre. Nice visit
