The Jesuits College is, by its historical importance, one of the most emblematic buildings of the city of Funchal. Founded by decree by King D. Sebastião, on the 20th of August 1569, the Jesuits College of Funchal marked the life of the whole island of Madeira over the centuries. For over 400 years it had several tenants, from the Jesuits who built the historical set to spread Christian faith, to the English invaders, the military who settled here for over a century, to the present day as Madeira University’s headquarters.
