The building, an emblem of the University and of Zaragoza, was inaugurated in 1893 to house the new (then) Faculty of Medicine and Sciences. Following the renaissance palace architecture standards of Aragon, it is built out of bricks, apart from the central entrance made out of stone. Going up the wide staircase we are greeted by the statue of four important Medical Doctors and Scientists like Miguel Servet, Andrés Piquer, Ignacio Jordán de Asso y Fausto de Elhuyar. Santiago Ramon y Cajal, Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (1906), is leading the way to the Aula Magna.

The Paraninfo was renovated in the years 2006-2008 after which it hosts the Rectorate and Vice-Rectorates of the University. Several expositions take place in its exhibition rooms throughout the year, while it offers its conference rooms for Conference and Meetings.
