Portugal dos Pequenitos (portagal for the little ones) is a very nice children theme park in the centre of Coimbra that is also educational and interesting for the parents to visit.
The park was build in 1940 and still receives additions and improvements.
The park consists of a mini Portugal made up of houses, street, farms, castles and a monastery build according to real life buildings that mark Portuguese history and tradition. The buildings are however build to the size of children allowing them access to explore and play while the parents are left as giants outside!
The park has small museums to commemorate the former colonies and show objects and the lives from these colonies.
There is a restaurant and a modern day playground. All in all it’s a great way to spend a day with children in Coimbra and one they certainly wont forget.
