Built at the beginning of the 1900s, Bartolome House is an impressive red-brick building forming three sides of a square, with graceful arches, gargoyles and decorative wrought-ironwork. It´s a distinctive building with real character. The old and the new - once inside you find all the modern facilities you would expect of a top law school.
