Camara Municipal De Coimbra - Review

Not much remains of the original Romanesque structure that was first constructed here in 1131. The increasing importance of the monastery and the church - culturally, politically, scientifically - in the ensuing centuries led to many architectural facelifts. It was completely renovated by King Manuel’s order.

This has resulted in a few key highlights:

  • The 1525 main portal by Nicolau Chanterene.
  • The 18th century Baroque organ
  • The Renaissance Manga Cloister
  • Cloister of Silence by Marcos Pires, with reliefs of scenes from the Passion
  • 17th century sacristy

There are three other items of note close to the church and monastery. Firstly, see and photograph the facade of the Coimbra Town Hall immediately to the north of the church. Then, directly south of the church entrance, check out the Santa Cruz cafe, which is said to have some delicious treats. Finally, the square right outside the church has some benches and is a good place for people watching.

Camara Municipal De Coimbra, Coimbra Reviews

  • Absolutely beautiful medieval Place situated in a wonderful Portuguese Village. The hostesses just so kind! This place is well situated to go to a number of different Castles Roman ruins and beautiful medieval places

  • If you are touring Portugal and visiting sites, then this is a must. The church may seem low profile but consider how old yet we'll preserved this place is, and consider that the met 900 year old remains of the first two Kings of Portugal are found here... at the back of the chruch - at either side of the altar. You have tile depictions of the story of Afonso I and how Portugal came to be. If you're into Portuguese history... this very spot is a great place to start.

  • A 12th century monetary, rebuilt in 16th century, home to remains of Portugal's first king and his son. The monastery was rebuilt following Manueline style and houses some very old paintings and historic possessions. The tombs of the two Kings are decorated using highly detailed sculptures on white marble. The place is a must visit for people interested in Portuguese history, and it's first king. The cathedral is open to all, however a charge of 4 euros is applied if you want to visit other parts of the Monastery, including the tombs of the kings.

  • A beautiful church with the first two kings of Portugal buried in the monastery inside. The monastery part is only open until 4:30pm, so be sure to get there early.

  • Beautiful Church with ornate decor, beautiful tiles and a big, nicely decorated organ. Was lucky to be there when the organist was practicing.
