Christmas time in Penela (34 km away from Coimbra) is lived in a very special way. Penela has Portugal’s biggest animated nativity in an area of 700 square meters with 150 wooden characters. The whole of Jerusalem is superbly depicted in this amazing nativity. A lot of entertainment, fun, colour and magic!
From May 7th to 12th, the university city of Coimbra will host emblematic students’ feast Queima das Fitas. An exceptional opportunity to visit the city of students and witness a unique tradition! In Coimbra, where else?
