Biblioteca Joanina - Universidade de Coimbra, Coimbra

4.6
Browse a collection of 250,000 volumes, some dating back to 1750, at Biblioteca Joanina - Universidade de Coimbra, a rich European library. The older works are difficult to preserve because of their fragile papers, but the site uses both modern technology and ancient techniques to maintain them--including hosting a colony of live bats, which eat bibliophagic insects and woodworms. Walk through three rooms of the library, adorned with decorative arches, painted ceiling murals, and gilded shelves carved out of tropical wood. Take a guided tour and learn about the history of the institution.
