Back when Coimbra was a frontier between Christianity and Islam, King Afonso Henriques established this Romanesque cathedral. It was built not long after his victory over the Moors at the Battle of Ourique in 1139, and unlike other churches of its day has kept a lot of its Romanesque character. You’ll know that you’re at a boundary between worlds when you approach the austere facade, which is capped with crenellations and has only slender openings in its wall. Inside, the primitive barrel vault hints at the great age of the cathedral, and the column capitals have wonderful foliate, geometric and bestial designs. Lovers of medieval art will have 380 of these masterful capitals to inspect! (450 meters from this accommodation)

Where the second king of Portugal was crowned. Coimbra (Aeminium, in Roman times) is an Episcopal seat since the 5th century, succeeding neighbouring Conímbriga. Despite its long history, there is no mention of a cathedral until the construction of the Santa Maria de Coimbra Cathedral, which began in 1164 by initiative of Bishop Miguel Salomão. It was consecrated in 1184, despite the rest of the building not yet being finished and in 1185 the second Portuguese king, D. Sancho I, was crowned there. It is the only Portuguese Romanesque cathedral from the time of the Reconquest, which survives relatively intact to this day.

The Old Cathedral is more akin to a fort such is its solid, almost oppressive appearance – all crenelated walls, narrow window-slits, and heavy-set veneer. In fact, this is one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in Portugal. Consecrated in 1184, King Sancho I was crowned here shortly afterwards when Coimbra was the nation's capital. There are flourishes of extravagance relieving the somber effect of the exterior: the elegant Renaissance Porta Especiosa on the north side of the church is the most obvious example. Otherwise, tourists need to venture inside to appreciate more ostentatious design signatures such as the gilded, late Gothic high altar, which dates from 1498. The fancy retable, which depicts the birth of Christ and the Assumption, is the work of Flemish master wood-carvers, Olivier de Gand and Jean d'Ypres. Incidentally, the square in front of the Old Cathedral is where João I was proclaimed king in 1385.

The construction of the Old Cathedral began in the 12th century under the direction of Master Roberto, who was directing in the same period the works of the Cathedral of Lisbon. The Romanic church, built in yellow limestone, is located on a slope and is composed by three aisles, prominent transept and threefold headboard. The one floor cloister, located on the southern side of the church was built in the beginning of the 13th century. From the several works and remodeling that the cathedral went through, stand the work campaign that took place in the beginning of the 16th century and the works of construction of a renascence Specious Door performed by Architect João de Ruão and the sculptor Nicolau Chanterenne. Standing on the north elevation of the transept of the church, the Specious Door, of high sculpting value, in white limestone, is composed by three overlaid architectural registers, particularly the loggia and the adornment that reconstructs the triumphal Roman arches. Inside the church stand the headboard, the lantern-tower over the cross, the medieval tombs and the 16th century Seville tiles that encase the columns and the aisles, and that today are circumscribed to some areas and arcosoliums. In the 18th century, after the expulsion of the Jesuits, the episcopal headquarters were transferred to the Church of Jesus College in the city uptown, known today as the New Cathedral of Coimbra.
