University of Deusto
The University of Deusto first opened its doors in 1886. Its birth
was the result of the combined concerns and cultural interests of the
Basque Country, which wished to have a university of its own, and of the
Jesuit Fathers, who wanted to move their school of higher studies from
La Guardia (Pontevedra) to a more central location. The chosen site was
Bilbao, a bustling seaport and commercial city that at the time was
enjoying considerable industrial growth.
