Escape room was a good way to enjoy Coimbra. We loved the fact that the history of Coimbra is still incorporated in the puzzle. Eduardo did a great job creating a challenging masterpiece for everyone to enjoy. You've got an impressive mind my man!

We enjoyed a lot this escaperoom! The details about the city, the university and students. We were 2 persons and we had some struggle to finish it, so I would say it has medium level difficulty. The GM was so friendly!!

A very good entertainment and puzzling game. It allowed to know a little bit of the history of Coimbra from the 20th century. The location is good but I think a little hard to find.

I went for the escape room 'Ignez' together with my mother. A true challenge but that is what makes an escape room fun :) as non-portuguese players this room was perfectly doable and Eduardo was also able to help us out in English. 5 stars!
