The old Roman house located in the street of San Agust n, constitutes a representative building within the Historical Heritage of the city of La Laguna.

This building was built in 1866 as a single-family home of the family of Colonel Gabriel Rom n Manrique de Lara. The house had several owners throughout its first 80 years of existence, until in 1925, it became the Political Politics College, where the careers and Agr Engineering Tailors are taught simultaneously nea. Since then the property begins to be dedicated to the teaching function that has characterized it to the present.

In 1956, the building was registered as the property of the Island Council of Tenerife and later it was transferred to the University serving as headquarters for several institutions and organizations of the same, such as:

The Social Council of the University of La Laguna, the Course of Pedagogical Adaptation (C: A: P), the Secretariat of Publications and the Institute of Political Studies.

In 1994 it became the National Distance Education University, first sharing use with the C: A: P, and the Secretariat, and two years later in 1996 and until today, only as Headquarters of the UNED .

The educational use requires that in successive stages the property be subject to actions and uncontrolled additions that came to undermine it practically in its entirety.
