Resumo

In 1064, Ferdinand the Great conquered Coimbra from the Musulmans. The authority over the town
was trusted to Sesnandus. Born in a Christian family of Coimbra or its area, the count had been
educated in the Musulman court of Seville. In the time of Sesnandus, the Christian rule was not
extended farther than the line of Penela and Soure, where castles were built. The relations seem
to have been peaceful between Sesnandus and the emir of Badajoz, who controlled Lisbon and
Santarém. An essay is made here to imagine the urban space of Coimbra and to map the villages
that existed around the town.
