Local Information

  

EuroGP, EvoCOP and EvoWorkshops 2004 are co-located in the historic town of Coimbra, in the center of Portugal. The city is rich in history with one of the oldest universities in the world, founded in 1290 by King Dinis. Many of the university buildings are located on the hill above the town centre overlooking the Mondego River. The medieval streets of the upper town are winding with ancient alleys so expect to get a little lost at first but there is plenty to see including the famous university tower and Baroque library and Portugal's finest Romanesque church, the Sé Velha or Old Cathedral. The Roman archeological site of Conimbriga is 15 km nearby.

What to bring

Weather in April can be variable. The average temperature ranges from 10-18 degrees but it can sometimes be rainy. As Coimbra is a hilly town, comfortable walking shoes and an umbrella would be sensible items to bring.

A selection of maps will be available at all the hotels listed on the accommodation pages for your arrival, and will be available at the registration desk along with local tourist information.
