La Rana de Salamanca, Salamanca

3.5
Guarantee yourself good luck all year by finding La Rana de Salamanca, sculpted into the façade of the Escuelas Menores of the University of Salamanca. Being the first in your group to spot the weathered frog remains a popular challenge for both students and tourists. Detailed sculptures of Catholic kings, popes, cardinals, and skulls adorn the rest of the highly detailed Plateresque entrance, which was finished in 1553.

    It seems that it is essential to find it if you visit the city, but today there is no mystery, Google will show you where it is. It has a special charm, no more.

    Who makes a visit to the old town of Salamanca cannot go to the façade of the University to find the frog, it is said, that find it gives good luck, also you can have a fun time. Part of the frog, the facade is worthy of visit to observe it carefully.

Where to stay in Salamanca
