    This monument is located in the heart of the old historical city. It is to visit with a guide to the hour. And this at 11:00,12:00, 13:00, 16:00, 17:00 and 18:00 hours (Saturday and Sunday also to 14:00 hours). The visit takes about 45 minutes. The entrance fee is €4.50. In this building is now the Rectorate of the University. In front we see a beautiful platerescogevel from the 16th-century. Within we visit successively 3 patios, patio: patio mayor of philosophers and finally the trilingual patio. The formal opening of the academic year will take place in the Paranínfo, a very beautiful and impressive Hall. Highlight of the visit is the chapel of San Ildefonso where the walls are decorated with reliefs of stucco, the handsome ceiling is in Mudejar style. The whole makes a lot to impress me!

    According to the website's tourism, the Town Hall and the University itself could be visited the University and San Ildefonso this afternoon at 16:00 and 17:00 h. Not really. It's locked. Without any notice or information. A shame.

    Simply spectacular must just clean the façade which looks in all its splendor, plaza de San Diego in its exterior and the visit to the inner cloister can't miss them if you visit the city
