As one of its main goals, the Department for Culture of Universitat de València aims to disseminate its immovable heritage.
The historic La Nau building is undoubtedly the bastion of the University of Valencia , with regard to both the construction itself and its contents. This exceptional building located in the centre of Valencia constitutes the very history of the University and also holds part of the University's most important collections.
In addition to being a witness to history, the University has sought to preserve La Nau and turn it into the institution's main cultural reference. This is why the Historic Library coexists with the former rectory, the assembly hall, the lecture hall, the Matilde Salvador hall, the chapel, the five exhibition rooms - Estudi General, Oberta, Thesaurus, Duc de Calàbria and Martínez Guerricabeitia—, the lecture rooms and the management offices.
