Fodor's Review

Founded in 1732, the university was formerly a Jesuit seminary. The original churrigueresque church, La Compañía, still stands next door. The green limestone facade of the university, built in 1955, was designed to blend in with the town's architecture. Between the university and the church, several art galleries and one small museum associated with the center of higher learning present rotating exhibits of contemporary art.
