A focal point for industrious students, teachers, and researchers, this old barracks complex now contains the city's historical archives, the newspaper and periodical library, a video library, two concerts halls, and six exhibition spaces. In summer, there's always an interesting program of live concerts held outdoors in the beautiful courtyard. You can enjoy the music and a relaxing drink in the wonderful surroundings. Pedro de Ribera designed the building, with its attractive baroque fa├žade, during the reign of Felipe V in the 18th Century to house the King's Royal Guard.
