The rusticated, arched entry to the Seminário’s Old House is a monumental High Classical composition, fully developed in detailing. The gates, in iron and bronze, were imported from Bologna and like the rest belong to a practically unheard-of model in Coimbra.

Coimbra, Seminário Maior.

Francesco Tamossi and Giacomo Azzolini, 1748-1765.
