Visited on 09 2015

This is a seminary or theological college, an educational institution for educating students (sometimes called seminarians) in theology, generally to prepare them for priesthood. The school bought this building in 1928, it was an old abandoned monastery. The 9-shaped Seminário de Santa Bárbara had long corridors, named after saints.


The seminary was abandoned in 1967, it was used as a home for the elderly until 1984. Plans to rebuilt it as hotel didn’t make it. Today the building is still abandoned and in a very bad shape, parts of the buildings have collapsed.
