This is a lovely architectural stone courtyard and building. Very old and stately. Students are robed in black a la Harry Potter. This city has a very cultural and educational vibe.

lovely column ringed majestic courtyard in Salamanca college. It is worth a short visit. There may be more to see at this sight, and there may be an entrance fee, but we had to attend an event in a spectacular room upstairs and we had no time to look at the tourist options here.

The Archbishop Fonseca College is where many professors and students live. It has a beautiful patio and the building is from the 16th century. The architecture is from the Spanish Renaissance.
