THE COLÉGIO DOS JESUÍTAS

Founded by royal charter of D. Sebastião in 1569, the Jesuits' College of Funchal marked, throughout the centuries, the lives of the inhabitants of Madeira Island. For more than 400 years of its history, it served a number of tenants, from British invaders to the University of Madeira, coming to serve as a military facility and a number of schools. Despite its military applications, it has always kept a close relationship with education.

Portrayed as "one of the most remarkable buildings that exists on the island" by Historian and Professor Rui Carita, the Jesuits' College of Funchal is the stage of a cultural and scientific awareness project lead by the Students' Union, meant for, both, local residents and visitors of the region.
