The foundation bull of the University of Baeza dates back to 1538, being the Pope Paulo III. The University worked for about three centuries and was closed down in 1824, when it became the College of Humanities. From 1875 to 1979 it was used as a secondary school, where the poet Antonio Machado imparted classes of French Grammar between 1912 and 1919.
In the mannerist façade there is a relief of the Holy Trinity and the coats of arms of Fernández de Córdoba adorned with tassels. Inside there is a great courtyard (patio) that organizes the distribution of rooms, as in other Renaissance buildings in Baeza and Úbeda.
