Located on the north western outskirts if the city, Coupal is a wooded area which is mainly very popular with local joggers, but is also pleasant to go for a walk. Not really something that I would put on a tourist itinerary.

A beautifuk forest that has not been preserved or maintained. Could be a great place but needs other type of infrastructure.

You should come to this place only to leave the city relax and make 30min-1h running. This is also used to make lunch with families, however they must bring their own food :P

If you love to run this is the place, always fresh with those beautifull trees. also the best place to play some pick-up basketball, the courts are not very good, but usually theres lots of other players there and you can get some interesting games.

Great place for a nature walk 5 minutes from the center of Coimbra. You can ear and see a vast number of bird species, including grey herons, tawny owls, common buzzards and one colony of black kites.

A trip to the north part of Portugal is very interesting, driving with a car over narrow roads with many u turns makes it wild.

between the rio Montego and a canal, a beautiful place to come to rest and admire nature... there is a cafetaria hidden among the trees where one can drink a coffee, and lovely walks all around
