About University Of Coimbra, Coimbra

The oldest university in the country, and one of the oldest in continuous operation in the world, this university is an important monument for all of humanity! It was established in 1290 King Dinis, and settled here in the Royal Palace of the “Alcaçova” 1544. And appropriately, UNESCO added to the world heritage list in 2013. It has two major sections - the Palace of Schools, and the The College of Jesus (oldest Jesuit college in the world).

Visitors to the campus should check out:

  • The Iron Gate: See the sculptural representations of Theology, Law, Medicine and Canons at the site of the entry of the original 10th century Muslim fortress that once stood here.
  • The University Tower: The landmark of both the city and the university, the 34 meters high 18th century tower by Antonio Cannevari was meant to be an astronomical observatory. It has the best views of the city
  • The Armory: Weapons (halberds) of the former Royal Academic Guard, still used in formal ceremonies today
  • Museu Academico / Academic Museum: A museum dedicated to student life in the University of Coimbra - music, sports, arts, related documentaries and a library
  • Sala dos Capelos (Hall of Capes): Once the country’s first Throne Room, this grand hall is now used for ceremonies and examinations.
  • Chapel of St Michael: The 11th century original chapel here was also dedicated to the same Saint. The gorgeous art and craftwork you see here today is from the Baroque period. Check out the incredible Grand Organ with 2000 pipes.
