Known as the largest academic festival in Portugal, the Queima das Fitas of Coimbra brings the entire academy and its students together in a series of initiatives during a week of great excitement.
Many are those who come to the city to witness the famous Serenata Estudantil, in front of the Old Cathedral of Coimbra, where the various students of the city gather in the academic dress. It is a solemn moment that begins the festivities.
In the remaining days are the concerts that are swarming the city, culminating in the long-awaited academic procession with the finalists of each course to wear your folders and tapes, a farewell to the academic life.
