It has two interior spaces that combine Mudéjar plasterwork with Gothic and Renaissance themes. One of these is the auditorium, used for academic ceremonies, with its remarkable six-pointed interlacing work decorated with reds, blues and golds. The floors and seating areas are decorated with ceramics. The other such space is the Chapel of San Ildefonso, also in Alcalá, with its octagonal roof.
