  • It is part of the visit to the University of Salamanca. It is of a portal beautiful where between their details sculptural is is a frog. We must find out at the same University or in any souvenir business, why it is important to find the frog.

  • A classic in Salamanca is this "frog", since then nestled in a setting of great beauty. Super facade and graceful of the frog.
