While visiting Coimbra, we were surprised to learn that it was Portugal’s first capital, beginning in the year 1129. Today it is a lovely, historical city with Portugal’s oldest university, currently serving 23,000 students.
The people of Coimbra are open and friendly, and we had nice interactions with a few of them while we were visiting. This is a convenient city for us because it is only about 5.5 hours in car from our home city of Burgos, Spain. Believe with us that God’s Highest Plan will be accomplished here!
