Universidad de Alcala reviews
Amazing university. Fantastic experience, great discovery. To come back. The “paraninfo” is impresive. So much History to discover. Also the Iberoamerican art museum is great.

This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site university town. Not the grandest of world heritage sites but very historic. It was founded by Cardinal Jiménez de Cisneros in the early 16th century. Alcalá de Henares was the world's first planned university city. Not to be confused with being the oldest as this goes to Bologna in Italy. It has some pleasant historic buildings, a neat plaza and is well worth a visit as it’s a nice town. Just don’t expect an Oxford or Sorbonne.
Not a student, however wonderful exterior architecture. Worth a half day trip over here.
