After crossing the solemn "Porta Férrea" (literally, the "Iron Door" in English), the entrance of the "Universidade de Coimbra" - the oldest academic institution in the Portuguese-speaking world, you will reach "Paço das Escolas" - the historical campus. "Porta Férrea" dates from 1634 and was projected by architect António Tavares, being the first important addition to the complex after its acquisition from the Spanish Crown. "Porta Férrea" was conceived as a double-side triumphal gate, decorated with sculptures and engravings connected to the foundation, in 1290, of the Univerity. It is impossible to miss "Porta Férrea" at any visit to the historical campus of the iconic "Universidade de Coimbra". Enjoy!
