The MADEIRAN HERITAGE program brings together the cultural and tourist values promoted by the University of Madeira Students' Union. The program is executed through the promotion of several monuments and attractions of Funchal where a wide range of services are offered, highlighting the free educational visits that are provided to educational establishments throughout the region. In addition, the MADEIRAN HERITAGE offers, free of charge, music, exhibitions, cultural tours, audio guides, autonomous circuits of history and other initiatives.
The Jesuits' College of Funchal, the Church of St. John the Evangelist, the Town Hall of Funchal, the Legislative Assembly of Madeira, the Monastery of Santa Clara, the historic centre of the city and Quinta Vigia are monuments and attractions that are integrated into our program.
Through our cultural and historical circuits, our colleagues support the visitor’s knowledge of the valuable material and immaterial heritage of our region, allowing the visitor to explore how these monuments, and their occupants, helped shape our society. The University of Madeira Students' Union collects its funds and depends on the support of its visitors, donors, patrons and volunteers. Through the income of the visits, we have been able to finance several social support and volunteering programs, the beneficiaries of which are the students of the University of Madeira.
Winner of several national and international awards, including the Good Practices Award of Young Associativism, awarded by the Portuguese Institute of Youth and Sports, and the University Volunteer Award, promoted by Santander, MADEIRAN HERITAGE continues betting on the training of its employees and the excellence of its services.
