Located in the Gothic masterpiece of Santa Maria da Vitória Monastery, a special visit should be made to this chapel with its magnificent stained-glass windows, cloisters, Unfinished Chapel and the tombs of several Portuguese notables.

The best place in town. If you are going to Coimbra or stay some place around, you must visit the Mosteiro. The hole place is incredible, and the history is fascinating.
