Aside from the scrumptious food, gorgeous views, and rich history, Portugal is known for its spirited music. If you’re like us and you want to feel melodies, to dance to them, check out the city of Coimbra, nestled against the Mondego River in the central west part of the country.
Coimbra is home to a rich musical history.
