The adorned entrance to the Law faculty in the University of Coimbra .
From this façade and to the outside-left, is the library, not allowed to take photos there – but fabulous and impressive how books preserved there for centuries, no lights on the library…daylight and/or candles…only.
Through this entrance and left, there is the University-Chapel, graduates and/or tutors only can get married there.
The history of the Coimbra University dates back to the 13th century when the town was the capital of Portugal.

Très jolie cette façade de l'Université, je croyais plutôt que cétait une église. L'architecture est merveilleuse et belle terrasse aussi. Excellente présentation et encore bien conservée pour le temps.
Félicitations!... et amitié,

The two statues are framing well the entrance. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the facade of the law school. The morning light is embellishing the colors. Have a nice day.

molto bello questo ingresso monumentale con una luce perfetta che fa godere al meglio delle ricchezze architettoniche del palazzo.
Buona la gestione della luce.

I've noticed that the ancient law schools of Europe are so beautiful. The one in Rome was so impressive as is this one. The details are very ornate and expertly captured. And the small amount of cloud provides a touch of dynamism.
TFS and I wish you a lovely Saturday

Nice record illustrating the law scholl entrance in Coimbra, good idea to highlight the architecture details Ike
unclehotshot (3999) 2015-12-26 11:57
I find this take very well made. The crop and especially the many tones of grey and brown/ sepia are brilliant. The lighting has a good quality to it and the little piece of sky revalls it was a fine day, The mosaic on the floor in the fg is not bad either.
Cheers Ike and have a nice Sunday.

I had missed this one. This is very familiar to me. A good photo of this famous gate, with good details and a nice blue sky.
ChrisJ (112259) 2016-04-14 18:16
The gate still has charm even though it is ancient and weathered. Good sharpness and I like the 4 statues. The fg tile pattern adds interest in the piazza. Tfs!
