The Colegio de San Jeronimo was a secondary school staffed by the Friars of La Merced from 1757 to 1761, and subsequently became the Royal Customs and then Spanish militia barracks. After the devastating 1773 earthquake, some of its stones were used in other buildings, but there are still remnants of the original walls. Today, its highlight is the octagonal fountain which resembles a flower amidst the main cloister.
