La Casa de Los Estudios
The Casa de los Estudios is located in the historical center of Villanueva de los Infantes; the first works date back to 1580 by the city council to create a Minor School in the heart of Campo de Montiel, taught by the famous philologist, pedagogue and moralist Bartolomé Jimenez Patón natural of Almedina and personal friend of Lope de Vega and Francisco Quevedo, obtained the chair of grammar in this municipality of La Mancha in 1600.
The patio maintains its original appearance with very few modifications. It is also the best structured and proportioned of all the infantelos patios with an exceptional cult projection, with square pillars, arches of half point and edge vault: some elements that give it a certain claustral aspect.
