The university of Evora is located a bit outside the city center but easily reachable by walk. The inside is splendid. It looks like a convent and you can see the classrooms decorated with azuléjos. Do not miss the library.

If you come here on the heels of Coimbra, you will likely be disappointed. But it is a fine old institution of higher learning with students in traditional black cloaks and lovely tiled lecture halls and classrooms.

The tiles in each room relate to the subject matter taught in the room. It is well worth the visit but you must go in the classrooms. There is also a good photo exhibit with before and after photos of Evora.
