The University of Coimbra in Pictures

Coimbra’s university dominates the highest reaches of the old quarter and consists of an impressive set of faculties. Each building is unique but every single one is beautifully preserved. Stone pillars lead to squares with fountains while others are set beneath intricately cut stone statues and white pillars and bell towers. As if they aren’t enough, views of the Rio Mondego and Beira Litoral extend to the horizon as a visual feast greets your eyes in every direction.
