Colégio de São Tomás

Santa Cruz, Coimbra

Presentation
Originating in the 16th century, this building has undergone several renovations, the most significant one was in the late 19th century, when the former college was adapted as a residence for the Counts of Ameal, and during the 20th century, when it became the Law Courts.

Notes

The cloisters, begun in 1555 and attributed to Diogo de Castilho, remain intact. In the present building, the huge wall-panels of narrative tile-work by Jorge Colaço, which cover the walls of the atrium and the two floors of the cloisters, are certainly worthy of note.
