The Jesuits are a Catholic religious order (Society of Jesus) founded by St Ignatius of Loiola almost 500 years ago. Its presence in Portugal dates back to the beginning of its foundation, having played a key role in Portuguese missions around the world. Not being a conventual order, they are characterized by living in the middle of the world, paying special attention, in their pastoral action to education, science and culture.
The Jesuits were sent to the Portuguese, Spanish and French colonies, and expanded their missionary vein from religion to culture, creating a vast heritage of involvement with the various aspects of modern culture.
Today there are about 16,000 Jesuits spread throughout 120 countries of the world, dedicated to the most varied pastoral missions, from academia, to science, to working with the poorest (especially refugees), young people, spirituality and interreligious dialogue.
Inside the Brotéria, there is the Leather Room, the former líbris of the building, with walls fully lined with worked leather. Brotéria is open to the city on a fixed schedule from Monday to Saturday between 10:00 and 18:00. (Free admission)
