DESCRIPCIÓN

This square building, built in a neo-classical style, is structured around a large, two-storey interior courtyard that housed various faculties up until a few years ago. The origins of the Literary University date back to 1733, despite the fact that most of the work of the architect, J. Martínez, was completed in 1830. The neo-classical façades were designed by Martorell in 1889, except for the side on the Plaza del Patriarca, which was finished in about the middle of this century. A fountain, which was not part of the original design, was added later, as was the upper cloister, in 1931. The auditorium, the neo-classical chapel and the library are of particular interest.
