Overview

Barcelona's university: and the only one in Catalonia until 1715, was closed down by Felipe V. It later re-opened, and the original Renaissance structure was restored in Gothic style between 1863 and 1868 by Elies Rogent. There is the beautifully kept botanical gardens to the right-hand side of the main building that was laid out in 1860; it is an ideal place for a quiet stroll, or you can sit down and read a book in peace. You can also visit the university's café located under the patio for its lively atmosphere and very cheap drinks.
