There were so many outstanding buildings around the Jardin, it’s hard to pick a favorite. However, this one is defiantly a top contender. The lines, the stone work and overall craftsmanship were simply breathtaking - a must see if you’re in the area.

Beautiful university. You must climb the stairs for a picture. You can recognize the university from all over the city.

This is a great building that is best seen up close, as well as up from the Mirador with El Pipila. The flight of stairs are great fun to climb. I actually took some courses there once.

It's a wonderful place to visit and study. The steps are part of the fun. Time to get into shape. Try the Pipila.
