Between the centuries XV and XVI in Castile, the kings' interest and the educated by the education of the nobles grew, in majority by human influences that came from Italy. Through some treatments related to the virtuous, they were established by these methods for the education of the young men and old men. The aim of this research is to examine the treatises in which dialogue is established between the father and his daughters or a preceptor and the children, trying to highlight the distances and approximations between one and another. The selected treatments on the education of the daughters are Punishments and Doctrines that a sage gave to his daughters and Garden of noble maids; Once treated about the education of boys are: "Way to raise children" and "De liberis educandis". In addition to the richness of its content, these treatments were chosen because of their diffusion in the Iberian Peninsula. Most of them are presented as a sort of art of living or living virtuously. Therefore, It is necessary to question the extent to which these new or resumed notions have been formulated and considered as ideal of good conduct for girls and boys.Keywords: education, women, Middle Ages, Castile.
