The city has great history dating back to Roman times, the grave of the Kings Afonso Henriques and Sancho I, the first Portuguese Kings, is also in Coimbra as well as world famous Fado singing, unique to this area as unlike in Lisbon, it is sang by a man and not woman which can be experienced during your tour in the narrow street of the old town.
