Good exhibition and film explaining the history. There is a small restaurant here which is very good and excellent value.
One of the places in Coimbra which is definitely worth to see. The conservation of the historical items is properly done, and the initial part of the Museum Visit, with the projection of a film really gives you an idea and how living was back then.
Another monument very much connected with Portugal History: building started in 1238 dedicated to Saint Claire and St. Isabel from Hungary. On the left bank of Mondego River, was constantly flooded by the river.. It had a a Consecrated Church, an hospital welcoming 30 poor people, a Manor House (where Queen Isabel resided as a dowager) and its own cemetery.... 更多

The church is remarkable for the blue and white tiled Stations of the Cross along the walls and the lovely ceiling. There is a coffee shop next door where you can look out over the square that looks to have once been part of the church.
Situated near the banks of the River Mondego Mosteiro de Santa Clara-a-Velha is a good place to visit on a sunny day, The staff are attentive, helpful and speak English. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the ruins offer a pleasant exploration. Recommended.

This site can be incorporated into a nice walk from the downtown centre of Coimbra, with good access from the main bridge. The entrance takes a bit of work to find and could be better identified: just keep an... 更多
The history behind this 14th century church/monastery is fascinating. Abandoned in the 17th century after being flooded one too many times by the adjacent Rio Mondego, it was all but forgotten until the 1920's when a restoration project began. What I found most interesting is that the entire lower level of the monastery was still submerged under water and silt/mud... 更多
This is one of the more important sites of Portugal and it is an impressive visit. The sheer size of the ruins, the wealth of materials and the richness of its histoy makes this a site to see. However, you need to read about it first and do some research. There is very little signs or information fir the visitor.... 更多
This is the old monastery, which flooded, so was replaced by a new one much higher up the hillside. You can wander around the ruins and get an idea of the effort that went into its construction. There's been some rebuilding to enable it to be used for occasional events (and to make it safe for visitors). The exhibition in... 更多
