Lapa dos Esteios

Santa Clara, Coimbra

Presentation
Lapa dos Esteios is a fabled place in Coimbra, and from it you can enjoy a unique landscape of the river and the city. Immortalised by poets, and a meeting point for well-known intellectuals for almost a century, it forms part of the 17th-century Quinta das Canas, which still preserves much of its former matrimonial glory.

Notes

At the entrance there is a sumptuous gate, followed by the garden, some plane tress and the Fonte da Primavera, that dates from the 17th century. The set of statues with their backs to the city are also an interest point, as they are important art pieces that evoke Fortaleza, Diogenes and Asia. There are also other statues that symbolize Faith, Hope, Kindness and Death, scattered amongst the trees. Besides the architectural heritage, this space also has a very well structured arboreal landscape, with gardens, plants and a waterside vegetation near the river shores. Lapa dos Esteios also have a lovely view of the city as its located on the left shore of the Mondego, on the Southern exit of Coimbra.
