Educational Service


The Education and Activities Department at the Convent of Christ welcomes thousands of visitors each year. It was set up to attend to the needs of teachers and pupils/students from all education levels, working together with the Technical and Scientific Support Office.
In addition to dynamising school visits, the departments plans, develops and realises the contents of the pedagogic tour guides and files made available on this page, and also carries out diverse awareness creation activities aimed at attracting new publics, highlighting the importance of heritage in the collective memory and national identity.


Parents to the Convent
On the last Sunday in each month the Convent of Christ invites the "Parents to the Convent". If you are between 6 and 14 years old, bring your parents along to the Convent, where you can all take part in a detective game in which you will find out fantastic things about the people who lived here. You will experience adventure, overcome challenges and, in the end, discover the treasure!
