Royal College

of Maidens

Cardinal Silíceo's generosity led him to found the College of Noble Maidens.

Plaza Cardenal Siliceo, 1

Revolutionary for the new concept that brought the highest educational distinction closer to the lower classes.

The co-patronage of King Felipe II, which is still preserved today in the figure of King Felipe V, made it one of the best colleges in Europe.

A building still unknown to many, it opened its doors to the public in 2015. Among its many treasures that enchant all visitors, without a doubt, is the collegial atmosphere that still lingers within its walls.

Cardinal Silíceo himself wanted to be buried here, out of the affection he had for what was his great project. The imposing tomb that now houses his remains is unique in Toledo.
