Coimbra - A School with Art

Coimbra holds a vast and unique heritage wealth, over more than two millennia. It was the birthplace of Romans, Arabs and Kings. Coimbra was chosen by D. Afonso Henriques, in 1131, to be the Capital of the Portucalense County. Here we have the pleasure of transporting ourselves back in time to a Roman city, which is now a museum, thanks to its sculptures and paintings over the centuries. We invite you to let yourself be rocked by Fado de Coimbra and by the serenades of our students. For these reasons, the city of Coimbra is considered, nowadays, a multicultural center.

Jews in Coimbra

The existing Sephardic Jewish heritage in Portugal left deep and decisive marks for the development of the country over time. In recent years, the city of Coimbra has experienced very important moments in the field of Jewish heritage.
