  • As a tourist I discovered the National College of Monserrat | UNC one night walking through the center of Córdoba capital and I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of the architecture, as well as the excellent condition of the building's façade and lighting, without a doubt a very nice place to visit. I recommend at night to better appreciate the imposing building.
  • Very valuable elements in this museum. Safety pin!!!!
