SAN LORENZO DE EL ESCORIAL
R.C.U. MARÍA CRISTINA
The classic Real Centro Universitario Escorial - María Cristina becomes the heart of the Summer Courses of the Complutense University.
The centre was founded by Philip the Second and refounded by Queen Maria Cristina of Habsburg and Lorraine as the Royal Centre of Higher Studies in 1982. It is currently a centre attached to the Universidad Complutense of Madrid.
For years, the inauguration of the Summer Courses has been celebrated in its Aula Magna. From this edition onwards, it becomes the very centre of our summer activity.
In addition to the classrooms for the celebration of the different activities, this venue will house speakers and students.
All students who are offer a scholarship will be accommodated in shared rooms.

Its origins date back to the 19th century, then known as Fonda de San Luis, where Isabel II, among other illustrious characters, stayed on their way to exile.
