Alcalá de Henares University

Alcalá de Henares has a long and proud history, thats for sure. Just check it out on Wikipedia. IN FACT it was a ‘city’ long before neighbouring Madrid got that same status!

In the picture you see the old ‘Rectorado’ building, the main building of the University. This institution was originally founded by strongman Cardinal Cisneros, once the most powerfull person in Spain (maybe even rivalling the Pope at that time.
