80 reviews of University of Salamanca

College and univeristy buildings

The University of Salamanca is the second oldest university in Spain and one of the oldest in Europe. It was founded in 1218 as a comprehensive school and later converted into a University by the wise Alfonso X in 1254.

Like Oxford or Cambridge, the University of Salamanca has several Halls of Residence. They were founded as charities that allowed poor students to receive a university education. Today many of these colleges remain, with the same function as before. Others have become faculties and part of the university. Today the University of Salamanca enjoys great prestige and is considered one of the most advanced research institutions.

I hope to return

The University of Salamanca is the second university of Spain; the first was the University of Palencia and is Churrigueresque. On its façade you can see different historical figures and above it all is the Vatican coat of arms. On the right column you can find a skull with a frog on top, the legend says that any student who finds the skull will succeed in exams and that the tourists who find it will return to Salamanca. I've seen and I have returned to Salamanca twice and hope to return in September for the tuna (student music group) contest.

One can visit the university and find different rooms that belonged to distinguished professors like Miguel de Unamuno, Friar Luis de Leon and many more.
