Discover 4 centuries of history in the Jesuit College
"History of a Monument” is on display until August 31st, depicting the four centuries of the Jesuit College, an important institution that has adapted to the changing times.
The Jesuit College was created by Royal Grant on the 20th of August of 1569 by His Majesty King Sebastião, for the evangelization and establishment of the ideas of the Counter-Reformation, or Catholic Reformation, resulting from the religious schism (Protestant Reformation) that took place in this period.
At this exhibition, the visitor discovers the 400-year history of this magnificent space, which has served as a school as well as quarters for British troops during Napoleonic wars.
