The University of Cervera, now a cultural monument, came to be the only university within Catalonia in the eighteenth century, after six other universities were discontinued. King Philip V of Spain intended this to be an economic incentive for Cervera who supported the House of Bourbon in the War of Spanish Succession and thus punish the rest of Catalonia for their support to the House of Habsburg. Some political titbits for the Camino!
