Unfortunately, a nice building is undergoing refacing or some kind of work that requires much of the front to be obscured. This building houses the law school and administration for the university

The building certainly has the looks to inspire good learning.It is an imposing building with some renovations. Take the steps up to the rear and walk up the hill for a good work out and good views and a look at how the locals live.

A very picturesque building with a nice view of the city from the top of the 86 steps. Worth a visit just for the photos. Also a very good ice cream seller on the street between the university and Plaza de la Paz.

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