Évora University was founded by Cardinal Infante D. Henrique in 1559. Several persons of great religious and cultural importance such as S. Francisco de Borja, S. João de Brito, Pedro da Fonseca, Manuel Álvares, Luís de Molina and Francisco Suarez are somehow related to this university. As far as the architectural set of the building is concerned, your attention should be drawn to the Renaissance cloister, Sala dos Actos, and the Holy Spirit Temple, inspired by Gesù church in Rome, presenting a Mannerism plan. This temple is signed by architect Vignola. The church has some of the best examples of D. João I gilt carved wood, while the classrooms are filled with Lisbon Baroque tiles depicting the subjects that are taught in the university, such as the panels that portray the classical experience of the Magdeburg hemispheres.
