Summary

This owes its name to the group of buildings, of historical and architectural interest, where the Holy Office of the Inquisition functioned from 1566 until it was suppressed in 1821. Besides these headquarters, the patio housed the early College of Arts. After excavation and alteration work, since 2003 part of the former college buildings have been used by the Visual Arts Center (CAV).
