  • This University has its entrance opposite the House of the Conchas.Tiene hours of opening. The entrance has a cost of 3 euros (guided visit) most 3.75 per person to climb the towers Scala Coeli (197 steps). Inside as beautiful on the outside. Beautiful exterior facade. By inside emphasize the stairs in the guided visit to the cloister, at the aula magna... all beautiful and full of history. Very beautiful altars.
