If you enjoy having crazy fun times & Portuguese culture, you definitely cannot miss this unforgettable festival.
Cortejo of Coimbra (or “Burning of the Ribbons” in english) is the BIGGEST STUDENT FESTIVAL IN EUROPE (if not the world) and it’s considered the 2nd festival with most consumption of beer in the world as well!
What happens in Coimbra’s Cortejo and why is it SO good?
Students collect money and find sponsors since their freshmen year in order to build a huge allegoric car to parade in the streets (always with a theme) and have tons of alcohol together – that means liters of beer, wine and spirits that will be given for FREE to everyone who is near! Seems unbelievable, doesn’t it? Believe it’s true!
