Great to see such an old building being enjoyed and used by the students with grace. Peek into the atrium, the entrance to the library, or at the student digs-better than anything we had! Vibrancy all around.

We spent nearly two hours and enjoyed the building and all of the exhibits. We didn't use the audio guides but there were clear descriptions in English throughout the building. Fantastic building and history.

The details and Masonry is so fine, it's difficult to believe. Something that is difficult to take in all at once but remains with you after you leave as you continue to ponder the scenery.

This is your chance to find the frog on the university facade. Try to read up on how to find it, otherwise ask someone if there is a crowd around. It is not that easy to spot. Otherwise the general buildings from the outside are...More

Ciao a tutti! Qualcuno saprebbe dirmi dove si prenota la visita guidata per la Biblioteca dell'Università di Salamanca? La visita comprende anche il resto dell'Università (aule, cortili, ecc...) o per questo giro bisogna fare un biglietto a parte? Grazie a chiunque voglia rispondermi!
