  • At the corner of one of the streets of the old centre, stumbled upon the University... We placed a few minutes in the patio... Very friendly. Frankly, we would have had a little more time we would have tried to offer our services for a french course.

  • So hey can visit the internal patio. Free of charge. Goes for a break ... sit down and breathe. There are no options to something else in there.

  • Nice building where you can take a photo of the bust of Gabriel García Márquez, easier to find than his house.

  • Although education is very good at this University of corrupt, I think that they should give it to more people and not coming for thread and payment of the race. Rightly this colombia like this, only these unfortunates are those who study.
