Pretty grounds and a good stopping point to rest after a tour of the college. It was a Monday when we visited, so there were many workers with annoying blowers cleaning up the grounds after a busy weekend.

The Jardim Botanico was well worth the walk up a steep hill. The plants were beautiful and the gardens well maintained.

We stumbled into this nice park by accident when we were looking for the museum close by. Had a nice stroll around the park, exploring the plants and trees around. This is really nice place to take a deep breath and enjoy the nature around you.

After walking part so many things that were chargeable in the centre of town it was a delight to learn that the Botanic Garden was free to enter. In a lovely spot near the university, it felt very peaceful and relaxed here.

A very charming garden, with many different types of trees and plants, some of them are indeed rare and they were brought into this garden from various parts of our planet. In my opinion, the best period to visit this garden is Autumn, when the leaves of various trees begins to change their colours (from green to various shades of... More

I really love the Coimbra's botanic garden, but the area that visitors can walk is not that big. Huge trees, a beautiful fountain. Should have more information about the plants and trees. But it is a good place to take pictures and the relax. Entrance is free, but is never crowded. A importante information is that the place has stairs... More

This is a beautiful garden with many established trees and plants. I think it would be a lovely place to sit and relax in the shade in hot weather. I would not say that there is a great deal of planting here, and there seems to be not much in the conservatory. The best thing about the garden is the... More

Nothing crazy, but a nice place for a shady stroll on a hot Coimbra day. Worth walking through if you have time to kill between meals.
