Explore one of the oldest university cities in the world and the oldest in Portugal. The University of Coimbra, found in the city of the same name, was built in 1290. Built on the site of a former palace, it is famous for its 12th-century bell tower and baroque-style library, Biblioteca Joanina. The area is also known for its religious buildings and is considered a spiritual sanctuary where the world’s faithful can come to worship. There are numerous churches to visit, like the church of Santa Maria, one of the most beautiful in Portugal. Instantly recognisable with its blue and white tiles depicting the Virgin Mary, it was built in the 16th century and was known as the “Igreja de Santa Maria do Castelo”.
