This college or stronghold was built in 1364 at the wishes of Cardinal Albornoz for Spanish students. It is surrounded by a crenelated wall and the attractive gateway was built by Formigine in 1525. Inside the walls of Collegio di Spagna, there is a magnificent cloister with double columns onto which faces the Gothic church of St. Clement. Inside this church is a polyphonic by Marco Zoppo (15th Century) and in the sacristy you can see frescoes by Lippi di Dalmasio and G. M. Crespi. Some further frescoes can be seen under the loggia, which are attributed to Annibale Carracci.
