TIP OF THE MONTH
You should visit Coimbra University for an experience straight out of a Harry Potter movie. The University halls and courtyards with students wearing the typical Hogwarts uniforms of black robes, patterned with colored patches and symbols, will make you wonder if you are about to meet Harry and his friends in the next corner. In fact, J.K Rowling lived in Porto for a few years and was inspired by her visits to Coimbra, which she later used in the Hogwarts visuals, including the uniform.
Coimbra University is considered amongst the greatest in the world for the past five centuries and plays a significant role in Portuguese history. In 2013 it was named a UNESCO World Heritage site.
