Equipment and Infrastructures

Standing on Avenue of Armada on the coastal road to the east, this building is worthy of note, being imposing for the size of the ensemble, the large inner courtyard and the harmony of the main façade. In this area, part of the 20th century urban sprawl, the building stands out as a wide built ensemble that was once the Silva Cunha Technical School ((project by Lucínio Cruz). In architectural terms, it follows traditional lines, with a balance between the traditional and modern design of several Portuguese overseas high schools of the 1950s-1960s.
