The first building of the university that is notable for its architecture is the one constructed at the end of the 15th century, after the move of the institution from the Colegiata. It consists of a four sided cloister, which opens up the hallways, and a late Gothic chapel. At the cloister one enters through a portal, also late Gothic, that opens to the Bookshop Street. At the beginning of the 18th century, this became insufficient, prompting an enlargement consisting of a quadrangular cloister with four galleries that open to hallways built at the same time.

beautiful facade of the university of Valladolid, is the third oldest university in Spain was founded in the year 1241
Lousy university, bad choice to study in it, Valladolid and its people is closed, teachers put poor grades as a rule, even if you kill yourself to work and study because they put subjective exams, the lack of education of the Pucelins it is what stands out most about them along with their stinginess and passivity in the face of problems. Flee this city yes you can, from its people and from its lack of civility.
