  • This school is an ancient building material, which sinceramnete is worth knowing if you have a free afternoon taking the time stop by this place to meet him

  • The visits are guided and cost EUR 4.50. It's worth it because the guide explains a lot. Is a return to history. Finally the Cervantes room (he never went there) that is pure luxury. Oh, and it's not a school, but a school!

  • Beautiful building, as with the facade and courtyard. San Diego area harmoniously complements the impression, just pleasantly linger on it, after drinking a cup of coffee.

  • A beautiful historic building. Visit it and its gardens and patios is worth. In addition there is the precious meeting room where every year Cervantes are given awards. Of course if you go to Alcalá is a must-see place.

  • It is the most representative building of the University of Alcalá. Located in the Plaza de San Diego, is one of the most beautiful of this city. The façade recalls in its details to the University of Salamanca. Inside, the building is divided into three cloisters ending in the most solemn room of the institution: the Auditorium, place where the Cervantes Prize is awarded

  • Build one of these emblematic buildings ordered by Cardinal Cisneros, showing the power of the Church during the time of Isabel II. Surprisingly, its history. I highly recommend the tour since they show you the different courtyards, its history, the famous people who were even imprisoned in their units, and even, you can visit the Auditorium, which hosts the Cervantes Prize.
