Neighborhood: Barrio Antiguo

In the Patio de las Escuelas (Schools' Square), recognisable by the statue of Fray Luis and the plateresque fa├žade of the University, you can also see the old hospital, which currently houses the university rector's office. It's the oldest building on the university campus, and was founded by Fray Lope de Barrientos in 1413, to help poor students. If your sight is good and you are patient, you can spend ages looking at the grotesque positions of the figures on the balustrade at the top of the building. Although not open to the public, you can admire the beauty of the building from outside.
