Here we see the square and tower of the University of Coimbra in Portugal. In the middle of the summer of 2005 at noon, the sun is high, the sky is blue. Who do I tell ...

I particularly love the lady with the orange handbag and the sun hat, pondering along.

Still some facts, though ...

The university was founded, or ratified, in 1290 by King Dinis, having begun its existence in Lisbon. The royal charter announcing the institution of the University was dated 1st March of that year, although efforts had been made at least since 1288 to create this first University in Portugal; it is thus one the oldest of such establishments in the Iberian Peninsula. The Papal confirmation was also given in 1290 (on 9th August of that year), during the Papacy of the Pope Nicholas IV. In accordance with the Papal Bull, all the "licit" Faculties, with the exception of that of Theology, could be established. Thus the Faculties of Arts, Law, Canon Law and Medicine were the first to be created.
