Portugal - Coimbra

A train at night and an early bus got us to the best preserved roman ruins in Portugal, Conimbraga, near the university town of Coimbra. The tiled floors here were amazing, with many colours still preserved over 1700 years old!! It is a large place with a good museum and most of the grounds are still being uncovered, we saw maybe 5 or 6 other tourists. Great place to explore. Also it was so cold that the water in the fountains here was iced over, very cool too!

Coimbra itself was very scenic, with churches and old university grounds flowing up the hill from a large river, it's twisty streets took some exploring and it's views and street art were great too...

With the tiles behind... of sea creatures, horses and armies, flowers, symmetrical designs and love hearts....

Conimbraga, with Kris humping a pole! There was a whole little persons village here with doorways no higher than 3 feet, our little Munchkin felt right at home!!

Rich colours, still preserved despite the sun over 17000 years or so

Tiles, of the Minitoar at the heart of a labyrinth....

Coimbra, with it's flag in the foreground....

The latest brand name here....

Against a backdrop of tiles....

A shop entirely dedicated to selling lotto tickets, yeah that's the way to financial freedom!!

Praying for warmth?

Watching the sun set

Rockin out by the river before it got too cold and we retreated back to our room and a pool hall...

Dog anyone?
