Quebra-Luz is located at one of the most typical and famous places in Coimbra: the 'Escada do Quebra-Costas'.

This location allows our guests to have a direct contact with the history, tradition and culture of the city. Famous historical buildings (The University Tower, The city Old wall, Machado de Castro Museum, Se Velha Cathedral) are within a few minutes distance walk and, at the same time, the stairs area is nowadays the location of several artistic and cultural events (concerts, urban market at the 2nd Saturday of the month, outdoor cinema, etc).

Quebra-Luz is the perfect place to enjoy a true Coimbra experience. In the day, you can visit Coimbra medieval streets and, afterwards, relax at our backside mourish 'ptio', with a view to silent gardens. In the night, you can have a drink at the private 'varanda' (balcony) of your room and, sometimes, listen to some alive Fado or Jazz concert.

The apartment, which was restored in 2009-2010, is located on the second floor of an ancient building. The atmosphere of the apartment is cosy, private and relaxed. Besides the room, the guests have access to a fully equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room with a bookcase full with books within the book-crossing system and a lovely backyard ptio, with a view to nearby gardens and a quiet atmosphere.
