  • Since I go through any of the entrance arches, you go to a different world. Full of colour, culture, beauty for all the senses. Despite the fact that, for various reasons is somewhat neglected, the University City does not lose its magic! Is it worth visit it!

  • The university town, it breathes freedom within it, knowledge, diversity of thought. It is a welcoming place, accounts with everything and you feel at home.

  • Es patrimonio de la humanidad!
  • Great University, good teachers, magnificent architectural structure, filled with light, but it neglected. The politicking to a political side and internal corruption within it has made a very decadent University. However, educational excellence is still standing and trying to survive the difficulties, or rather, trying to overcome the shadows.
