Reina Sofía Library



The Reina Sofía General Library is one of the fourteen libraries which are part of the library system of the University of Valladolid.


It is located in the former Chancillería prison, in a building designed by the architect Nicolás Bueno. Its construction was finished in 1703. Since then and well into the 20th century, the building was used as a prison.

Since 1988, it holds the current university library.
