Ten years after the beginning of its construction, in 1748, the Major Seminary of the Holy Family in Coimbra begins to receive the first candidates to lead the priesthood.
In addition, the fresco painted inthe dome of the Seminary's church will amaze you.
As soon as you cross the magnificent bronze gate, you will glimpse the Casa Nova and the Casa Novíssima, as well as the atrium that gives access to the church, with an impressive pipe organ and several wooden sculptures. The library is one of the most impressive places of the Seminary. Here you can find some of the most important books, well protected with leather covers and pieces of metal.
