History of Quinta Grande

History of Quinta Grande


The name of Quinta Grande civil parish is owed to a large property that the Jesuits had there. The Jesuits were Quinta Grande’s first settlers.

With time, it would end up by including the locality, which would later rise to the statue of civil parish.

A considerable part of the land that today belongs to the ecclesiastic parish was formerly part of Ribeira Brava and Câmara de Lobos civil parishes.

When, in mid 16th century, Campanário ecclesiastic parish was created, it became part of Quinta Grande within the of Câmara de Lobos jurisdiction.
