Former Renaissance University

This Renaissance building was founded in the first half of the 16th century thanks to one of the most powerful and important personalities of the 16th century,  Frey Fernando Fernández de Córdova y Mendoza, the clavero ( guardian of the castle and lieutenant of the grand master) of the Order of Calatrava and president of the Council of the Military Orders. Thus, he seems to be a great humanist and one of the major patrons of arts in the first half of the 16th century.

His humanistic training and artistic  patronage it is not only reflected in the pious character of his foundations but also in the ideal of the Renaissance of reaching the fame after dying thanks to artworks.

Frey Fernado founded, using his assets, a monastery of Dominicans and a university to enlighten the local people in Almagro.

Both the convent and its university were abandoned after the sale of church lands ordered by Mendizábal in the first half of the 19th century.
