mapa The Faculty of Translation and Interpreting is based both in Puentezuelas Street, in the so-called Palacio de las Columnas, and in the building located in Buensuceso Street (opposite the School of Tourism).

Palacio de las Columnas

022prev The lessons take place in the so-called Palacio de las Columnas. This Neoclassical-style building, also known as Palacio de los Condes de Luque, was probably designed by the Spanish architect Juan de Villanueva. The palace was built between the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century. It was intended for Count Luque's private residence. This richly decorated building consists of a central part and two wings, forming a U-shaped plan. The palace has a Neoclassical garden, which can be accessed from the ground floor of the building. Back in 1946 plans were made to adapt the building for the Faculty of Philosophy and Humanities, based in this building from 1948, until the time when the former School of Translation and Interpreting was founded. 015prev
