It was a Surprise when I accidently ventured into this section of the University, its through a courtyard on the left side from the main door of the University. Its extremely pretty inside.

he sky of Salamanca decorated the ancient library of the university. it is a reproduction of the sky, constellations and zodiacal signs made in 400. It is a real show enhanced by an excellent setting of the place for a truly unique vision.

Located in the escuelas menores, and with somewhat limited opening times, is a 1 room museum. It houses the ceiling (largely renovated and repainted) of the original cielo de Salamanca, or Salamanca sky. Some of the constellations visible locally are painted on the dome shaped...More

Great 15th century fresco in the Escuela Menores college. Wonderful plasteresque gateway in and a really beautiful college all in all topped off with this great fresco

Tucked away in a corner of Escuela Menores, barely noticeable unless your looking for it, you will locate this unique attraction. I believe that it was part of the University library at some stage but now it's in a darkened room. You need to wait...More

A fresco painting on a ceiling discovered not so long ago. Representing zodiac signs. Free entrance short visit, walking 2 minutes from university entrance. You should not miss it, it is hardly put in evidence to tourists...

Go there and see it for yourself. Push the door, get used to the darkness, walk towards the stone stool and seat. Look up and marvel yourself with the Cielo de Salamanca. The fresco is truly magnificent! No picture to share as they are not...More

I expected more of the fresco. I expected a whole preserved room, but it is only the ceiling. Still it is a beautiful fresco. I was surprised that there was no entrance fee. When you are looking for the rana (frog) at the university wall,...More
