A university campus dating from the 16th century!
Jan 2020
In 1559, the famous Infante Dom Henrique, Cardenal of Évora and future King of Portugal, commissioned the construction of the "Colégio do Espírito Santo", a seminar for the young members and future priests of the "Companhia de Jesus". The college became later the "Universidade do Espírito Santo" and, in 1973, the "Universidade de Évora" was created. Today, near 8,000 students attend classes in its 16th century campus! Visit the ancient cloisters, check the magnificent Portuguese tiles and the church turned into classroom! Enjoy!

2nd Oldest University In Portugal
Oct 2020
Évora was the 2nd city in Portugal to have a university, in 1559, after Coimbra. The main attraction there is Colégio do Espírito Santo (College of the Holy Spirit). Entry is only €3 and there are no discounts for seniors. The majority of it is accessible to disabled people. Many of the classrooms are open and it is possible to enter and take photographs. There is also a refectory which sells coffee, teas and cakes.

Beautiful University
May 2019
I toured the university to see one of the oldest Universities in Europe. It is a self guided tour with no restrictions as to where you can go. Very interesting in its old world charm and modern facilities. A true gem and worth the visit to see the old and new combined without sacrificing the benefits of either. Words cannot express the impact of this University.

Worth for a visit
Sep 2019
It is strange that for visiting the university, one still has to pay for a ticket (3 Euro), but it is worth for a visit to see the beautiful buildings as well as the atmosphere of the university.

Universidad de Evora

Unknown to many people, the university can be visited. The walls of classrooms and corridors are set with beautiful azujelas.

Second oldest university in Portugal
Jun 2018 • Solo
The University of Evora is the second oldest in the country and it is hosted inside the Colegio do Espirito Santo, which dates mostly to the refurbishments of the 18th century. A Baroque monument it is especially nice to visit the cloister with the fountain and the rooms decorated with typical azulejos.

Very old university
Oct 2018
School was in session, but we got to see the classrooms, which were the same used since it was built. The classrooms had the old tiles on the walls and you felt like you were back in time. We had a hard time finding the library, but did manage to do so and the ceiling is very lovely.
