This building is now the university's Law faculty but there's nothing to stop you having a look inside at the lovely patio. The other parts worth looking at are the old cloister, the sacristy and the theatre. The sacristy's stucco dome is decorated with images of the Virgin Mary and important Jesuits. The baroque fa├žade features four spiral columns and a white marble statue of the Virgin Mary. Carlos V commissioned the building in the 16th century as a seminary and it was a Jesuit headquarters until 1759 when they were expelled and it became part of the university. Admission: free
