Photographer's Note

Student's residential houses throughout the old town Coimbra call as a "Republica".
Here is a typical house with signs declare it's "name".
The curved small alleys in the hill of the old-town are as typical I show here and in the WS's attached.
This area is near the Sé Velha de Coimbra, an old Cathedral built in the 12th century – so the area had begun it's ancient history during that time , when the count Afonso Henriques declared himself King of Portugal and chose Coimbra as capital.
