University of Évora’s Day

As in former years, November 1st has a post dedicated to the commemoration of the foundation of the University of Évora, on this day in 1559. This is where I entered in 2006 for my Licenciate Degree and, again, in 2015 for my PhD.

Last year’s post with some photos of this beautiful building.

The main building College of Espírito Santo is a masterwork of Jesuit architecture in Portugal and I’m very lucky to spend a lot of time here.



November 1st is also known in Portuguese history for a very sad event – the Lisbon 1755 earthquake – but I’ll be posting about this tomorrow and next Saturday.
