A selection of pictures of Coimbra, the Oxford of Portugal. It is mostly known for its university which was founded in 1290. The town was founded by the Moors and became Portugal's capital after it was recaptured by the Portuguese 850 years ago. Near Coimbra lie the Conimbriga ruins which date back to the Roman empire.
