Colegio Arzobispo Fonseca

The Arzobispo Fonseca College is a monument that was declared Cultural Interest Asset in 1931. It was founded by Toledo’s archbishop Don Alonso de Fonseca, and its construction began in 1519. Like the rest of university Major Colleges, it originally acted as a non-profit educational institution. This way, people without much financial resources could access to college-level education. It soon would lose this mission, though, to become a training tool for the State’s bureaucrats and the high ecclesiastical charges. The building currently counts with a restaurant, a café, and a chimney room available to all guests and the university community – as well as to the open public. Access to the web.
