Beautiful church in the heart of this historic town. Visit the cafe nextdoor which was a church in itself.

Absolutely beautiful church, but pay the €3 and go back to the courtyard, chapel, and sacristy! Full of history and detail! Worth the visit!

The church of the monastery was built in the 12th century, much of the church dates from a restoration in the 1500s.

We really enjoyed this place. You'll spend a little over an hour here (which includes taking pictures), visiting both the church and convent/cloisters. Definitely some pretty tiles and a crazy relic room. There's both an audio guide in English and plenty of descriptions in English, along with nice art and a gorgeous choir loft.

Be sure to walk all the way in the church until you find the entrance into the monastery. Definitely worth a visit, walk the hallways, visit the chapel where the first king of Portugal is buried along with his son. I love the architecture and try to imagine living in ancient times.

This is a beautiful & very peaceful cathedral with a lovely main church area as well as an upstairs cloister area in which to walk around and enjoy the peace & quiet despite still being within the city. Please note that it, like much of Coimbra, requires walking up steep cobblestone streets.

Beautiful historic site. It is very close to the center of town and definitely worth a visit. Be sure to go to the upstairs/outdoor courtyard, it is really incredible.

Besides the Coimbra University this Church and Monastery is an absolute must for any tourist visiting Coimbra.
It is located at the end of the main pedestrian street, next door to the City Hall behind an ornate Romanesque-Manuelino facade.
The complex dates back to 12-13 century when Coimbra was the nation's capital, while Manuelino decorations were added later in 16 c.
For a very cheap entry fee of few Euros you can visit the entire complex: Church with amazing Azulejos decorations, Monastery and cloisters, sacristy and elevated choir stalls which were moved on the second floor to make space for tombs of Portuguese first two kings on the ground floor by the altar, part dedicated to St. Anthony who spent part of his life here,...etc
Once again, unmissable and must visit place for any serious traveler.

We're so glad we visited the Sacristy of Santa Cruz. The attendant there was very enthusiastic and made sure we made the most of our visit.

The tile work is impressive and my favorite part. The Monastery is a separate area and is beautiful, but you need to buy a ticket. We were in a hurry and rushed in to see the churct.
