Seville University. The Second biggest historical building in Spain.

University History:The University originated in late 15th century as the School of Blessed Mary of Jesus (Colegio de Santa MarÝa de Jes˙s), founded by Archdeacon Maese Rodrigo Fernßndez de Santaella. In 2004 it had 73,350 students scattered around different campuses, being the second Spanish presential university by number of students.

In 1505 a papal bull of Pope Julius II allowed it to teach degrees in Theology, Philosophy, Law, Medicine and Arts. In 1551 the city council granted a General Study Centre (Estudio General) which enabled the School to become officially a university.

Building History:The main building of University of Seville is known as the "Old Tobacco Factory", because there was such a factory in the building up to the 50s. This beautiful building is also the setting for the very well-known opera by Bizet, Carmen. Carmen was, in fact, a worker in the tobacco factory. This building houses four of the university's faculties: the School of Literature & Filology, the School of Geography & History, and the Law School.

The only thing nicer than the building in this picture is the grass. WOW!
There are very few lawns that finely kept anywhere in the world. I've seen some sports stadiums with some amazing grass, but for a university green that is incredible!
