I really do not know what to say about this tower as well. It looks really nice and charming from outside but I guess that’s it. There is nothing special about it.

The University of Coimbra is a public research university in Coimbra, Portugal. It was first established in Lisbon in 12 century before it moved to Coimbra permanently in 1537. This is the oldest university in Portugal.

Located on the campus of the Universidade de Coimbra, this 18 th century clock & bell tower rising above the courtyard, is one of Coimbra's most famous landmark. You can tale a guided tour or go by yourself. Amazing views of the city and the Mondego river.

Gorgeous area. Wide open courtyard. Views of the City. Beautiful buildings.
We spent about 1/2 just gazing at it all.

Incredible history & architecture! This is definitely worth it- we did a self tour however a guide is better if you are looking for a thorough understanding!
This literally gave me a understanding of the enlightenment period !

The University tower stands in the corner of the University square between the Sao Miguel Chapel and University Palace.
It is not included in your combo ticket, but with it you pay only 50 cents to climb it.
I must emphasize I climbed many towers all over Europe, and this one by far has the narrowest staircase I've ever seen. In the upper part it is impossible to bypass other visitors, therefore they have staff at the bottom and at the top which communicate when people can go. For that reason people with claustrophobic and mobility issues should avoid it.
Once up, you have amazing views of entire Coimbra and further countryside, as the University plateau is already on top of a hill.

This impressive tower, built from 1728-33, is not the reason one would come to this part of the university. That would be the library and chapel. However, it is certainly nice to see.

This is the belltower in one of the main plazas of the university and very impressive. It is sometimes possible to ascend and get an even more wonderful view of the surroundings of the town but for mobility reasons we did not attempt this. The view from the balusrades of the placa were sufficient.

We observed this lovely tower while we were walking around. It is among the handful of beautiful old buildings on the campus and one of the reasons why you visit.

We were a very small walking group tour and arrived by foot. Interesting the buildings and more so the stories behind what one sees. Good views over the city and surrounding areas..
