Nice visit! Nov 29, 2010
Founded in the thirteenth century, the university is as iconic as the Oxford and Cambridge universities in England, or the Harvard and Yale universities in the United States.

The university boasts some very beautiful buildings, and a few of these were undergoing renovation when I was there.

Although I was quite content to just see the buildings from the outside, the Joao V library deserves a special mention. Beautifully decorated, the library holds over 300,000 volumes and can only be used if you have the relevant authorisation.

The location is not too far from the city centre, and fairly near the cathedrals. Consequently, it is worth strolling around the area if you are nearby.
