“Amazing carved entrance but that's all”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Enjoy the building from the outside and especially the carved entrance.
Otherwise, I would not recommend to visit inside the building, unless you really have a pretty good reason

“Find the frog on the skull”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Incredible architecture in this city, dating in some cases from the 12th Century.
The facade of the university should be a wonder of the world.
Find the carving of the frog atop a skull amidst the intricate carving and you will pass your exams.

“View from the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

There was a choice of to visits & we chose the "Scala Coeli". This was a visit to the tower and whilst the climb is not for the feinthearted it was well worth it. The views are spectacular and it was possible to climb even further & visit the bell tower. The cost was around 6 euros for both of us which I thought was very reasonable.
I would not recommend the climb for those without a head for heights and be prepared that the stairwells are narrow so best to avoid peak times of viewing.

“I don´t think it worth the value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

the facade is magnificent. It has a lift (expensive) for a visit with the same facade. My option was for university entrance which is also quite expensive and I was disappointed with my choice. There was closed rooms and no warning in the entry. We do not recommend the visit because I do not think it's worth the value of the entrance.
