  • We were shown around by a nice lady who spoke very good english and she was an expert on the history of the university. We enjoyed the tour very much. 
  • Photo does not give the beauty and enormity of the buildings! This is a must see. Shake the small details. Excellent condition, unlike what we have from all such facilities. Be sure to visit. This is a masterpiece!
