The heritage of historical secondary schools, recovered after a laborious process of sorting, cataloging and preservation, is a great source of documentation for the history of education. The heritage artifacts tell about a certain way of teaching and learning and are of great interest to researchers and to schools themselves. They are used for research by teachers and students, so that nowadays teachers can refl ect on their teaching practice in the classroom, compared to what was done in the past and students may start out in research work. This is how we have interpreted it in the Isabel la Católica secondary school when considering a didactic use of the heritage of the Instituto Escuela Sección Retiro preserved in our school.
