“Too expensive for what you get”

Universidad de Salamanca
Ranked #8 of 98 things to do in Salamanca
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed November 30, 2012

This was an interesting old building. The guided tours are only in Spanish. We were a bit disappointed with the number of rooms open to the public and with the fact that you can only glimpse inside the ancient library. At 10 euros each, we were expecting more.

On Calle Libreros, University built in 1218, where there is a frog sculpted on a human skull - look 2/3 of the way up to the right of the right door. Several original buildings around a courtyard.

The amazement begins with the façade, and it goes on with the inside and particularly the library, but also the different "classrooms"

It really is a must see in Salamanca but has to be one of the worst value attractions in Spain. History is incredible and when you think what went on there, but much of it was not original and quite recent, and for 10 euro, we were expecting far better value for money in what was presented. And that ridiculous lift on the front facade is so offensive to a historical object of such artistic beauty, it should be illegal!

The beautiful facade has been spoiled by what I thought was a building scaffold, only to realise it is a viewing platform for tourists! Criminal is all I can say. I was disappointed by the interior but the history is fascinating and worth reading about before you visit.
