FCUC 3: ENTRY HALL

FACULDADE DE CIENCIAS DE COIMBRA

FCUC Entry Hall

18th c. azulejos live with vaulted ceilings and hexagonal encaustic tiles. It’s sad that whoever carried out the most recent “renovation” decided the floor should not become some “historical forgery” and so filled up the missing parts with epoxy resin. Fortunately most of the rest was intact, or who knows what else the Charter of Venice would have come up with.
