College of S. Jerónimo

College of São Jerónimo The College of S. Jerónimo is a large school building, whose construction began in 1565, near the city wall and not far from the old castle. It is part of a group of twenty-three university colleges that form a network around the University and that, even today, gives the urban landscape of Coimbra one of its most unique features. In 1836, two years after the extinction of the religious orders of Portugal, the building was incorporated into the property of the University of Coimbra. It was adapted for the installation of a hospital that operated from 1852 to 1986.
