Coimbra, University, aerial view

University is located on the highest hill in the city, overlooking the Mondego. Founded by King D. Dinis in collaboration with the prior of Santa Cruz, the abbot of Alcobaça and other ecclesiastics, it first established itself in Lisbon under the name "General Study". On August 13, 1290, it was sanctioned by the bull of Pope Nicholas IV. She was transferred to Coimbra in 1308 and here the monarch D. Dinis grants him the academic "forum". D. Afonso IV would transfer it back to Lisbon, from where he would return in 1354. This continuous shuttle and D. Fernando would move it back to Lisbon until D. João III in 1537a definitively installed it in Coimbra. Here, he settled in the old medieval palace that, during the reigns of D. Manuel I and D. João III, underwent major renovations in order to become more comfortable and suitable for his new functions. It was D. João III who offered the Alcáçova Palace to teach some subjects there, however, later, all university classes were transferred to that location. Later, the buildings became the property of the University (1597), as part of the purchase that the institution made to the Spanish monarch D. Filipe III (II of Portugal), who then reigned in Portugal.
