Was founded in 1559 by Jesuites, is a very beautiful building, specially the classrooms with tiles, every one have diferents subjects (depending originally what was teached there). I suggest also to visit where is the Library now because have some paintings in the ceiling. I studied Tourism here, is a great university and it really worth a visit, specially when is full of students! :)

During our visit it was Freshers week and the poor new students were undergoing there initiation. All good hearted but quite raucous.

I stumbled upon the university during a hot afternoon's exploration of Evora and found a place of cool tranquility. I enjoyed wandering about and enjoyed a tasty lunch at a price that students would be happy to pay. It was also interesting experiencing a natural Portuguese environment with not a tourist in sight!

We went with a guide and were able to see different classrooms and the library, might not be the best or most modern place to study but the buildings tells a story worth seeing!
