The lands of Condeixa were granted by D. Afonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal, to the monastery of Santa Cruz in Coimbra in the 12th century. The monks of the monastery were given the task of populating those lands and, among others, founded the town of Condeixa-a-Nova as the town of Condeixa-a-Velha already existed at least since the abandonment of Conímbriga.

The town prospered due to its strategic location in the Lisbon-Coimbra-Oporto road. It suffered much with the French Napoleonic invasions, with many of its different palaces and buildings being sacked and set afire, including the main church that was later rebuilt in the neo-classic style it now exhibits.

Condeixa-a-Nova reached its administrative emancipation in the mid 19th century, with the April 17th 1838 Chart issued by Queen Maria II. Presently, the municipality of Condeixa-a-Nova occupies a total surface of 138 sqKm with a population of about 17,500.

The municipality presents a mountainous side, with some hamlets in the heart of the hills, and an agricultural side that was one of the important sources of income for its inhabitants. Presently, Condeixa is a relatively developed town with its own industry and commerce and benefiting from the proximity of Coimbra and Conímbriga.
