  • Juan Gomez de Mora in 1618 laid the foundations of a House of learning with a serious square framed by classical buildings. The ancient languages Hebrew, Greek and Latin were taught here strictly.

  • Dreadful organization. The ticket office opened 4minutos before the start of the guided tour, which started without waiting for the people who was still buying tickets. Guide responsible for the tour lacked the necessary historical knowledge to make the visit and was notable for his rudeness with visitors.

  • It is not something flashy which visit the place. But the door still retains the original historical appearance.
