From the outside it looks like a ruin, it used to be a school and a church in the XVII century that was burned down during the Civil War; but a couple of years ago it was rebuilt into a library, now managed by UNED University.
The remains of the wall of the church, a large wall of red bricks coexists with the concrete slab stairs. That’s the reason why I would recommend to avoid the laziness of the elevator and go upstairs to the rooftop, the charm of the ruins are worth it.
The menu, which changes according to the seasons, is influenced by the best cuisines in the world, especially the Mediterranean and Moroccan. Like the “Eggplant and zucchini
Tempura style Gau & Café with honey rosemary and parmesan”, they also have hummus or couscous.
From Monday to Friday they have a daily menu for € 12.80 with high quality original dishes, and they always offers a vegetarian option!
And if you feel curious about the library: you need to enroll officially to be able to study there, but fortunately they also have daily visiting hours for tourists.
