The ARTIS - Institute of Art History, part of the History Department of FLUL, offers training in Art History, Heritage and Restoration Theory throughout three Study Cycles. 

R&D Unit

The Institute was founded in 2009 as a new research unit of the School of Arts and Humanities of the University of Lisbon. It is funded by FCT since 2015.


ARTIS-IHA publishes two journals, both with double-blind peer review: ARTIS - Revista de História da Arte e Ciências do Património and ARTis ON (published online in open access), along with other publications.


The hydraulic system is an architectural subsystem that can only be understood in view of the dual constitution of its structure: the one located at ground level, referring to drinking water (lower hydraulic subsystem) and the one related to rainwater (upper hydraulic subsystem) . Both imply aspects of major importance for the functioning of any building: capture, distribution and evacuation of water.
To learn more, be sure to attend the Congress next October, between the 20th and the 23rd.
