  • Emblematic place used by the Salazar dictatorship for almost 40 years, with cells with small spaces, with no Windows, only small fenestrations, to let some inner light, a symbol of the dictatorial period, to teach the students to calm down insurgents the impetuosity of freedom of expression, which did not exist at the time.

  • The prison is actually a chain, for students who break the rules of the legal regime of the University at the beginning of the activities. The Rector (University Director) had the power to judge and condemn the bad students.
