CONFERENCE VENUE    
All Sessions will take place in the ROYAL COLLEGE OF ARTS where the Departament of Architecture of the Faculty of Science and Technology, University of Coimbra is installed.

Art and Architecture (source)

The construction of the College initiated in 1568. It was built around a square-shaped courtyard decorated with Doric columns (the originals) on the lower floor. On the second floor, there are signs of the interventions from the last great reform, in the early 20th century, in the form of elegant cast iron pillars.


However, the building has lost much of its original character due to the various occupancies and uses to which it was put over the years, although some of the original architectural structures are preserved in the former classrooms (such as the pillars supporting the arches and the groin vaulted ceilings). 


Regarding the two chapels in the College building, only the small one now remains. It is located on the first floor, on the eastern side. Although the 20th century’s building works, which raised the architectural structures, absorbed areas of the chapel, the atrium and sacristy were preserved, with only slight alterations.
