This, as with other buildings in Salamanca, is absolutely stunning. They teach English studies at this university. Our only regret visiting Salamanca was the fact we were only there for the afternoon

Evening walk round to see the amazing sculpted front and we found the skull with the frog. Wish we could have gone in.

We asked security at the entrance for wheelchair accessability. Adviced to go via the shop. First floor not accessible as yet. Ground floor impressive enough. Fan of fray Luis de Leon!
