Create an itinerary including Portugal dos Pequenitos
At Portugal dos Pequenitos, explore a miniature world displaying scaled-down versions of some of Portugal's most important monuments and buildings. The attraction was built in 1940 in honor of the nation's people, history, and cultural influence. While best suited for children, who will enjoy interacting with the exhibits and feeling large in this small world, adults will also find the historical value of the displays interesting. View a copy of the famous window from the Convento de Cristo in the historic city of Tomar, various monuments from the capital of Lisbon, and traditional houses. Check out the costume museum which includes over 300 pieces of miniature clothing, the naval museum full of tiny ships, and the furniture museum with small pieces handcrafted from exotic woods. Also, stop by the different pavilions dedicated to the former Portuguese colonies. The park lacks covered areas, so keep this in mind on hot days. Plan my day in Coimbra using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • A disappointing experience that was terribly overpriced. The idea is good and we've been to other miniature villages in Europe, but this one simply did not deliver.

  • I'm not sure how this "park" even reached the top 20 to do list in Coimbra, but it's a complete scam. The atractions are in decay, dirty, fountains in desperate need of new water. The only lesson...

  • It's a beautiful place to view the architecture of historic buildings in Portugal in a miniature style. This lovely concept allows adults and children to know how the significant landmark buildings in Portugal look and some information about them. The site is picturesque, with enough space for moving around and enjoying the site. Adults and children can enter the buildings and read more information about the building and its associating attributes. If you want to ease yourself when pressed, there's a public toilet. Additionally, when you feel hungry or need something to drink, there's a vending machine where you can purchase drinks and snacks. Overall, it's an excellent place to hang out as a family.
  • It is very interesting to be able to see in one place the striking architectural differences in each region of Portugal. Good for kids and grown ups! Children up to 3 years old are free. There is parking nearby, as well as restaurants and cafes. Highly recommend, it's an amazing place to take the kids!
