This building dates to the end of the 16th century and has served, successively, as a Franciscan convent, seat of the Central University of Venezuela and, currently, as the headquarters of the Academies Palace. Academies, plural, since it houses the National Academy of History, the Venezuelan Academy of Language, the National Academy of Medicine, the Academy of Political and Social Sciences, plus the Academy of Physical and Natural Sciences and Mathematics. It is wholly dedicated to study, research and the broadcasting of data, in spite of the fact that a vital institution that had shared the same building, the headquarters of the National Library, recently moved to a larger and much more modern building.
