Neighborhood: Old Quarter
Overview

You'll find the building that housed the first university in Valencia just behind the Real Colegio del Patriarca. The university building is an elegant example of Neoclassicism and has valuable sculptures inside. The most outstanding feature about the exterior, however, is its austerity, especially if you compare it to the Palacio del Temple, another neoclassical building but much more creative. The central cloister is calm and pleasant, surrounded by Doric columns full of references to teaching. There's also a bronze statue of Luis Vives in the middle.
