The Festival Jazz ao Centro – International Jazz Meetings of Coimbra was born in 2003 in the context of Coimbra – Portuguese Capital of Culture.

In the edition of 2018 the programme will be very diversified, celebrating tradition along with more exploratory approaches. In this sense, it is an absolutely unique festival.

From October 17th to 27th, the Festival will take place in several locations of the historical centre of Coimbra, such as the National Museum Machado de Castro, Salão Brasil, Sofia street and Convento de São Francisco.
