Festivities of the Holy Queen

Featured Event

In even numbered years, in July, Coimbra celebrates the festivities of its patron saint – the Holy Queen Isabel.

The festivities last around one month and include various performances, exhibitions, gastronomy/handicrafts fairs, sporting competitions and lots of entertainment.

The high point is the solemn procession dedicated to the Holy Queen, in which the wooden framework carrying her effigy, weighing around 1 ton, is transported by twenty four men through the main streets of the city between the Graça Church and the Convent of Santa Clara–a-Nova, following a trajectory that Queen Isabel de Aragão herself walked down many times when she lived in Coimbra in the 14th century.

Date to be announced.
