School of Infantes

This is a building with an irregular base, with two patios and wall with Toledo bonding. Its unusual entrance is striking, including many Italian elements, designed by Francisco de Villalpando who discovered the designs by Serlio for Spain on the decoration of buildings.

The columns at the entrance take the form of feminine figures with baskets of fruit on each head, on the lintel two small little angels hold the coat of arms of the cardinal Pedro Martínez Silíceo, founder of several educational institutions in the middle of the XV Century. The crown is a round painting of the Virgin and Child. It was a school for choristers who supplied the cathedral choir.
