Royal Hospital

Interesting
Founded by the Catholic Monarchs at the start of the 16C Enrique Egas was the first to be entrusted with designing this hospital in the form of a cross set in a square with four interior courtyards. Notice the plateresque windows on the first floor of the facade, the ornamentation of the entablature of the marble 17C door and, inside, the harmony of the patios on the left wing decorated with heraldic symbols. On the first floor, the central library of the University is worth a look.
