There are the remains of a middle age monastery. There is also a museum very good situated that you need to visit before to understand. There are also a vegetable garden coping a medieval one.

Its a very beautiful visit.

This huge monastery was literally under water for several years. The work done was just amazing and the end result is stunning. The supporting museum, in a modern building, is also very interesting and very well organised.

If you want to know more about Coimbra and medieval Portugal, you should pay a visit to Santa Clara-a-Velha.
It's a new museum, with a coffee-shop/restaurant with a great view of Coimbra city. Nice spot.
