Fodor's Review

Founded in 1732, the university was formerly a Jesuit seminary. The original churrigueresque church, La Compañía, still stands next door. The facade of the university, built in 1955, was designed to blend in with the town's architecture. If you do wander inside, check the bulletin boards for the town's cultural events.
