El Palacio del Conde Luna


El Palacio del Conde Luna is a 14th century gothic palace that was the seat of the original Kingdom of Leon, before Christian Spain was politically united under Ferdinand and Isabel in 1469. In the 16th century a three-story Renaissance tower was added, built for the daughter of Hernán Cortés, the conqueror of Mexico. In 2009 the entire building was given a 25 million euro renovation.We have been given the Renaissance tower rent free for 10 years to house our Study Center, the second such in Europe after the Rome Center.
