  • If they do not show it, you never you will find the frog. It is worth enjoying the facade and not let you view a vulgarity.

  • You can not visit Salamanca without seeking the famous frog in the façade of the school. Beyond the frog, the facade is impressive

  • One of the things to do in Salamanca is to try the frog hidden on the façade of the University. I'm not telling the story, anecdotes, traditions, you will have already read by all parties. If you go to Salamanca, you should look for it. Don't stand to lose much time. I don't want to say where he is. But there are people who for a tip you indicate. Easier and if you don't have all day, best 50 cents and off to other adventures.
