  • The visit is free of any charge.When we visited,it also had an interesting exhibition on African continet's people ,costume,culture etc. 
  • One of the buildings most beautiful of Valladolid, it is essential to see the courtyard and if possible up to the first or second floor to take advantage of the views and get some good pictures... (it seems to me that only opens in Office L to V)

Created by Cardinal Mendoza to accommodate students of the University. You can't go without stopping in the chapel of the Cristo de la Luz, which is just you share the door before the patio. Chaired by the image of the same name, a beautiful sculpture of the Carver Gregorio Fernández, titular image of the brotherhood of the University.

  • A historical building and one of the 'River of light' in Valladolid. A special place to stroll around the surrounding area.

  • A building with a monumental exterior. On the inside you can see a typical Castilian Palace. It also houses the Museum of African art, which is truly recommended.
