Much less at this beautiful University where so many Brazilians in the past studied there! I visited everything! Of the places where those who had a diploma from Coimbra (were not collected in ordinary prisons), passing through the tower, etc.
Beautiful place with outstanding library which is totally a must see if you are travelling to Portugal. Visiting system is quite strange but they have student discount.
It’s very well kept older craftsmanship when visiting the royal chapel and library inside. This is a real university with students around the place.
