15th Iberian Cosmology Meeting
The meeting is organized at the Physics Department of the University of Coimbra situated at the top of Coimbra Alta hill, leaning over the Mondego river. Coimbra is a university town of about 150 000 inhabitants, including a large fraction of young students. It has a remarkable cultural heritage, testimony of its long history, dating back to the Roman times. The University of Coimbra was created in 1290 by king D. Dinis, being one of the oldest universities in the world. The Physics Department is the heir of the Faculty of Philosophy, created in 1772. It is installed in a building located in the Rua Larga, next to the Porta Ferrea, the University Library, and the Faculties of Arts and Medicine. Whenever you find yourself lost in the town, look for the University Tower, right at the top of the Alta - it's the best reference point from almost any place in Coimbra. The Physics Department is just next to it.
Given that the Physics Department is located in the city center many other points of interest are within walking reach [see map].
There are several hotels located near the University of Coimbra.
