    • The jewel of Renaissance civil architecture!

      The University of Oñati (1548) is the first in the Basque Country and is considered the best example of Basque Renaissance civil art. The University of Sancti Spiritus, a center of culture since the 16th century, is a serene Renaissance building around a cloister. Considered one of the jewels of the Basque Renaissance, project of Bishop Rodrigo Mercado de Zuazola, its facade is elegant and majestic and inside it is worth noting the cloister, the ceilings decorated with Mudejar coffered ceilings and the Plateresque altarpiece in the chapel sculpted by the French sculptor Pierres Picart.

      The university is the beginning to know Oñati and its inhabitants!

    It is beautiful, I have to say that I have seen the old university and the church with a guide and I was delighted to repeat the same thing.

    This university, which is located opposite the tourist office in Onati, was founded in 1542 and until its closure in 1902, it was the only university in the Basque country. Nice building to see

    The University of Oñati is the most representative trace of the Renaissance of Euskadi, not only for its architecture but also for being one of the most significant institutions of the Renaissance spirit. Its Plateresque façade impresses and mixes sacred and profane elements. The central space is a large two-story Renaissance cloister. Inside the building you can also admire its Mudejar coffered ceiling.
