Sé Velha Cathedral is one of the most significant Romanesque buildings in Portugal, located in the historic city of Coimbra. Often simply referred to as Sé Velha, this Old Cathedral dates back to the 12th century and stands as a testament to the architectural and cultural heritage of the country.

The façade of Sé Velha features a robust and fortress-like appearance, characterized by thick walls and narrow windows, reflecting the turbulent times during its construction. Inside, the cathedral offers an austere yet awe-inspiring ambiance, with its barrel-vaulted nave and intricate stone carvings.

A highlight of the interior is the beautifully decorated main chapel, adorned with Gothic and Manueline elements, showcasing the artistic transition through different eras.

Sé Velha Cathedral is not just a place of worship but also a symbol of Coimbra's rich historical fabric. Its unique architectural style and well-preserved features make it a must-visit landmark for anyone interested in exploring Portugal's multifaceted cultural legacy.
