Coimbra is in the province of Beira, located in the central region of Portugal and crossed by Mondego River. This metropolis is acclaimed for its traditional character and for the historical sites that reflect on the past. Yet, energetic, cosmopolitan and focused on innovation, this is a city that keeps our eyes focused on the future.
The strategic location of this metropolis, which places it between the two main Portuguese cities, Porto and Lisbon, makes this one of particular importance, being considered by many as the third city of the country. Besides its geographical importance, however, this city is also famous for its history and for the reputation of some of its cultural and leisure centres.
Art, culture and education are, in fact, essential aspects to talk about in Coimbra. This city, known by many as the "student city", excels in its educational infrastructure, boasting numerous renowned colleges, schools and institutes of higher learning. Among these, the University of Coimbra stands out, not only because it is the oldest university in the country but because it is, according to the world ranking QS WUR 2017, one of the 500 best universities in the world and is in the top 5 of the best educational institutions in Portugal. This university will still earn 5 stars in the QS Stars rating in 2018. In architectural terms, it is also worth noting that the university is considered by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
The leap from teaching to working life is another reason why Coimbra presents itself as a city worth investing in. Modern and in constant progress, this city is home to countless companies and allows, therefore, to find work in the most diverse areas and sectors.
But Coimbra does not just invite you to learn and work. In this city, culture and tradition also play a major role as expressed in its museums, galleries, bars, cafés and gardens. In the metropolis, each space is a point of artistic and cultural expression, where interesting and diversified posters invite you to enjoy life in the best way possible. Theatre, music (where the famous fado of Coimbra stands out), painting, literature or dance are some of the artistic variants that can be found in such iconic venues as the Gil Vicente Academic Theatre or in one of the city's cafes.
Life's biggest pleasures are not only for the eldery as this is a city that alludes and appeals to the children's interest, thus becoming a family-friendly city. In addition to the green spaces where the little ones can play freely, such as the Parque Verde or Choupal, Coimbra also presents themed venues such as Portugal dos Pequeninos, where it is possible to have fun through educational learning.
Aspects such as accessibility, safety, quality of transport, efficiency of institutional services and the relationship between quality and cost of living make the city of Coimbra appealing to those who want to live in the centre of a lively and cosmopolitan metropolis with better infrastructure, while avoiding the hustle and bustle of the larger and more populous cities. This appeal has been manifested through growth in the real estate sector and makes Coimbra also an excellent investment point for those who work in this field.
