Housed in the medieval tower directly above the Arco de Almedina, this historical museum displays a plaster reproduction of Coimbra’s old-town layout, complete with castle. A multilingual audiovisual presentation takes you step by step around the 2km of walls.There's an exhibition and city views upstairs, but the real fun is looking down through the matacães (embrasures), through which hot oil was traditionally poured on enemies below.
