It is a very nice courtyard, just one minute from the main University building. Very nice arches and quite original from Salamanca. As a plus, you have here the wonderful "Cielo de Salamanca" and also a nice exhibition regarding this marvellous painting

Take time to absorb the atmosphere of this small square which is part of the university grounds opposite the cathedral. The figures above the arches are well preserved

A nice green setting, close to the university. In the building an exposition of artist Barceló. The 'matches' in the yard are his too.

The entrance to the Escuelas Menores is right opposite the iconic façade of the University Colleges. Lovely courtyard and beautiful Gateway of the Schools decorated with the two-headed eagle, the coat-of- arms of Carlos I are certainly worth a short visit.

This plaza is so easy to miss. Thank goodness for our local guide (Carmen). Once inside there is a stillness and silence. At the time of our visit there was an exhibition on loan from Barcelona of bronze "spent matches". My wife thought they looked...More
