Visit to University Heritage

We suggest a guided tour around the most significant university buildings within Santiago's old town. The route explores the institution's history from its origin to the present day.

The buildings that are visited are the old town's most emblematic ones, from its ecclesiastical period and the Enlightenment. 


 The itinerary begins at Pazo de Fonseca and continues with Colegio de Santiago Alfeo or Fonseca. 

The next stop is the façade of Colegio de San Xerome and Plaza de Mazarelos (University Church façade, Gate of the Old Colegio de Gramática, etc). In the Geography and History Faculty, the visit includes the auditorium, the large reading room and the terrace, with magnificent views over the old city.
