  The library of Coimbra University
by Franberu

King Dinis the first as created the University of Coimbra and everything in this city grew around that theme. Today, this university still have a notorious reputation all over the world. The library is the richest and prettyest local of the whole university and it would be a sin not to visit it while you're in Coimbra. (See the picture here).
