Geocache Description:


Pátio e Paço das Escolas

Entrando no Pátio das Escolas deparamos, ao lado direito, com a Via Latina, varanda de colunatas alterada na segunda metade do século XVIII. No centro desta ergue-se uma escadaria rematada por frontão triangular. No centro pode observar-se um medalhão com a figura de D. José I.

Através da Via Latina acede-se à Reitoria e suas dependências, reformuladas, na sua maior parte, na Reforma Pombalina de 1772, durante o reitorado de D. Francisco de Lemos.

No lado esquerdo da fachada estende-se o Colégio de S. Pedro, construção maneirista. A sua fachada principal está virada para o pátio interior, onde se destaca o portal barroco, obra datada de 1713.

Os Gerais ocuparam as antigas instalações da ala da rainha, objeto de remodelação nos finais do século XVII, relevos barrocos alusivos às várias disciplinas universitárias e esculpidos no topo das portas das salas de aula, obra executada por Claude Laprade.

Ex-libris da cidade de Coimbra é a Torre da Universidade, erguida num dos ângulos do Pátio das Escolas. Entre 1728 e 1733. Na parte superior estão os sinos, tendo desempenhado um deles, a Cabra, importante papel regulador da vida universitária e da própria cidade.

Royal Palace

At the entrance of the courtyard stands, on the right side, the Via Latina, a colonnaded balcony with a center staircase topped with a triangular pediment. This balcony suffered changes during the second half of the 18th century. At the center of the balcony lies a medallion with the portrait of King Joseph I.

The Via Latina provides access to the rectory and premises, an area that was reformulated during the Pombaline Reform of 1773, during the rectorship of Francisco de Lemos. The General Studies occupied the former premises of the Queen’s palace.

On the left side of the facade lies the Mannerist building, known as College of St. Peter. Its main facade faces the inner courtyard and the Baroque portal, from 1713.

The building, which was remodeled in the late 17thcentury, holds Baroque reliefs, alluding the various university disciplines, carved on the top of the classroom doors, a work performed by Claude Laprade.

Built between 1718 and 1733, the ex-libris of the city of Coimbra rises in the corner of the courtyard. The University Tower holds the bells that have played a significant and regulating role in the university life, namely, the most famous of them all, the Goat (a Cabra), the bell that to this day continues to call the students to class.
