Real Colegio Seminario del Corpus Christi

The Real Colegio Seminario del Corpus Christi (Royal College and Seminary of Corpus Christi) is a former Roman Catholic school and seminary founded in 1583 in the Spanish city of Valencia. It is located in calle de la Nau in the old city, opposite La Nau, the former Universidad Literaria.

The college complex was built between 1586 and 1615. It is structured around a large renaissance cloister enclosing the church, the communion chapel, the library, the sleeping quarters and the classrooms. There is another courtyard at the back and a small belfry is located in the corner of the plaza. The Patriarch was designated a National Monument in 1962 and a Monument of Cultural Interest in 2007, and remains a principal example of the Italian influence on renaissance architecture in Spain.
