Pátio da Inquisição (Holy Inquisition Courtyard)

Santa Cruz, Coimbra

Presentation
Pátio da Inquisição owes its name to the group of buildings of historical and architectural value where the Tribunal de Santo Ofício (Tribunal of the Holy Office) used to function, from 1566 until its extinction, in 1821.

Notes

Besides including the building that used to be the headquarters of the Holy Inquisition in Coimbra, the courtyard also held the former Colégio das Artes (College of Arts). After excavation and alteration work, to adapt the buildings to their new purpose, the Centro de Artes Visuais (Centre of Visual Arts) functions in part of the former college buildings, since 2003.
