The College’s courtyard is the first milestone in São


Paulo’s city birth. The site located on top of a hill between
the rivers Tamanduateí and Anhangabaú, was chosen to
start natives’ catechization.
On January 25, 1554 they built a hut about 90
square meters covered by palm or “sapê” leaves or,

Museums & CULTURE


as described by Anchieta, 10 by 14 “craveiro” steps
(“craveiro” steps were a Portuguese linear measure) and
in it they held the mass to commemorate the birth of the
Jesuit College. In 1556 Father Afonso Brás, precursor of
Brazilian Architecture, expanded the original building,
which received eight cubicles to become the Jesuits’
residence. Fights between settlers and religious led to the
expulsion of Jesuits from the site in 1640, to where they
returned thirteen years later. During the second half of the
seventeenth century, the third building was constructed,
made of rammed earth.
