University of Coimbra
The history of the University of Coimbra dates back to the century subsequent to the very foundation of the Portuguese nation, since the University was established in the 13th century, in 1290. Prior to this date, in 1288, a Supplication was made to Pope Nicholas IV  on 17 November 1288.  The document requested the foundation of a “General Study”.  The university is one of the main Portuguese touristic destinations. Every year the Paço das Escolas is visited by about 200.000 tourists.
