History:

The Jesuit School in Motril, Granada, dedicated to San Luis Gonzaga, was founded in 1740 by the Cardinal Luis de Belluga y Moncada. According to the papers consulted, it was made at the initiative of the city's canonry, which requested the construction of a school for the Society in Motril. The fact that the cardinal Belluga was from Motril made easier its creation there. The Cardinal is still remembered and celebrated due to the many pious works that he carried out in the city and the province. In the thirties, Belluga had created two chairs, the one of Theology and the one of Philosophy. This motivated the creation of a seminary for which he suggested the model of Granada's School. The contribution of real properties, valued in 30 thousand ducats, that the Cardinal made, permitted the construction of a school with two floors. It comprised several classrooms, a residence for 30 students and the house for the priests. The chairs of Philology, Theology, Laws and Canons were established. The space where the Jesuit School of Motril was established is now taken up by the Convent of Nuestra Señora del Rosario, which belongs to the the Dominican Order.
