Since Einstein's suggestion in 1916 about the necessity of quantum
theory of gravity, this has been arguably among the most convoluted
open problems in fundamental physics. Although the topic can be faced
from different angles, this course will emphasize black hole physics
as an interesting infrared window into the mysterious ultraviolet
properties of general relativity. We will review basic aspects of
these objects and their thermodynamics and treat to formulate the
information problem in modern terms by making use of quantum
information theory tools. Time permitting, we will comment about the
problem in the context of AdS/CFT and some of its proposed
