A mark of the city. The Bell rings at determined hours, so students know when to go to class or when to go home.

Only from the top of the Torre da Universidad you get a full view from Coimbra and surroundings. Very beautiful and in connection with history.

Great views over Coimbra. However the ever narrowing stairwell means this one is not for those that suffer from claustrophobia.

Cheap price - 2€, the narrow path up leads through many spinning stairs, amazing view over whole town, number of visitors at the same time is limited to the tower capacity

We were a bit annoyed that we had to wait in the queue to climb this tower (understandably, though, since the stairway is extremely narrow), but it was completely worth it. The views from the top are breathtaking, you can basically see all of the city and its hilly surroundings.
