Very Valencia

Old Town and historic sights

La Nau Old University

La NAU - the historic building of the University of Valencia - is located in the heart of the city and houses a cloister well worth visiting as well as an historical library, an auditorium, assembly hall and 5 exhibition halls.

Built in the so-called Valencian Golden Age in 1493, it was first given authorisation to award degrees by Pope Alexander VI in 1501.

Known as La NAU after the street name, the site is used for events, meetings and academic exhibitions. Interesting temporary exhibitions are also held in the building.

TIP! Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city centre and enjoy a nice breakfast or lunch in the cafeteria at the Nau building. It’s the perfect quiet retreat where you can relax and enjoy the views of the cloister.
