Portugal dos Pequenitos

In Coimbra you can visit Portugal dos Pequenitos, or Portugal for the Little Ones. It is a recreational-educational park intended primarily for children.

The park has thematic areas, like Monumental Portugal (miniatures of the country’s main monuments), Portuguese-speaking countries (representation of a.o. African countries, Brazil, Macau), The Islands (main monuments of Madeira and Azores), Coimbra, and Regional Houses.

You can also visit the Dress museum, that has around 300 miniature outfits on display from the 16th to the 20th century. Everything was handmade, and donated to the museum in 1950.

There is also a Barbie museum, the collection on display is the largest in Portugal and possibly one of the biggest in Europe, is composed of over 300 dolls. It includes the original Barbie of 1959, the Barbies of the world, the Hollywood collection, Barbies dressed by couturiers of international reputation, and many more.

Portugal dos Pequenitos also stands out as a high-quality display of sculptures and architectural art, the miniature size and detail of which continues to charm children and adults.

Activities at the Costa de Prata

Want to know what's on?

No-one will deny the Portuguese like a party. Many parties are organised during the year, for instance every village organises 1 or more parties, with lots of music, dance and good food. And if you don't speak the language: your hands and feet will get you a long way. Besides, many - young - locals like to practice their English.

Below you can read everything about parties, concerts, events and exhibitions that are on now or in the near future.
