Last thursday my colleague Laura and me went to Coimbra to explore this city and to see the interior design biennale. For the people who are not known with this event; it’s an exhibition with art, cinema, architecture and interior design, organised twice a year in Coimbra, but also in other cities all over the world, like Kortrijk (Belgium) or Venice (Italy). We wanted to combine this cultural event with some sightseeing, shopping and tasting good food (and alcohol, oops!).
Coimbra is a smaller city located in the west-side of Portugal, between Porto and Lisbon. In the middle of this city, you have the Mondego river, which reminds me a lot of the geography in Porto. The roman architecture is really impressive, like the location from the velha universidade (old university). You can see the result from this short trip on the pictures. Enjoy!
PS. Go and check Laura’s “works by L.” on facebook, it’s worth seeing!
