This chapel is really nice. It can get very crowded, so you should try to get a slot when few people are inside.

Located in the same plaza as the university and the library. Your ticket gets you in but they close for lunch, so plan accordingly. Very elaborate and with beautiful paintings.

Quaint little chapel on campus, with a large organ and tiled walls with biblical images, where services are still held and occasionally students are getting married.

If you have a little bit of time, see this and Joanina Library. You will not be disappointed. It's all in the university center so very accessible downtown

You'll probably be here less than 5 minutes, but it's well worth the visit. One of the nicest looking little chapels I saw in Portugal.

The chapel is on the multi-ticket, and well worth seeing. Beautifully decorated, and fascinating, the walls tiled in blue and white, and there are explanatory leaflets inside in English - although students act as guides too and we had a very knowledgeable Brazilian law student...More
