Besides its high and recognized academic level of the institution, the campus, Ciudad Universitaria, is a place that tourists can enjoy, The Rectory Tower, The Central Library, The football stadium and the botanic garden are interesting places in this place

We had to go for a mental arithmetic contest for my son. So we spent come time walking around the campus as well. There are some nice museums within the campus. We enjoyed our time at one of the largest universities in the world.
