Royal College of Maidens

Royal College of Maidens


The generosity of Cardinal Silíceo led to the founding of the Colegio de Doncellas Nobles. Revolutionary in the original idea that brought the lower classes closer to higher education.

The co-patronage by King Philip II, which is still maintained today in the figure of King Philip V, helped it become one of the best schools in Europe.

A building still unknown to many, it opened its doors to the public in 2015. Some of the many treasures it enchants visitors with include no doubt the collegiate atmosphere still found felt within the walls.

Cardinal Silíceo wanted to be buried here because of the warmth towards what was his great project. The imposing tomb with his remains is unique in Toledo.
