Real República do Bota-Abaixo Association

Shop History

The Real República Bota Abaixo Association, founded in 1989 as a República, is guided by its cultural activity addressed to students and to the  general population. The República coat of arms, identity symbol of the house, is different from all the others because is the first with no “praxe” [academic traditions] symbols or references. During the academic crisis of 1969, the Repúblicas Council proclaimed the academic mourning. Officially, the mourning was never cancelled, that is why many of the Repúblicas of Coimbra are against the “praxe”.

Products and Services

True replacement communities, alternative households from those left in hometown, the Repúblicas (communal houses for students) are more than just student or university residences, representing the traditional academic life of Coimbra, with all that this entails, from the bohemian life to the ideological aspects.
