  • We have visited this vast architectural work, and have it made with the help of a guide. It is worth to this guided tour, since otherwise, you can not access their rooms. When the tour ends, you have time to climb its towers. The only negative is that... we find it somewhat expensive.

  • This city has amazed me. The Pontifical University, has contributed very much to this. It is worth spending a day in kicking the city and see this monument amongst many others.

  • It is the best visits from one of the highest points of Salamanca. Seen throughout the city much better than from the Cathedral post that the Cathedral detract much vision towers of the Pontifical University.

  • Paid 10 Euro so I could go see the old library. As a bibliophile I love that kind of thing! But then you can't even get in. You can look at the old library through a window and can't even go in the new library. Save your money if you want to see the library. Look at pics on Google and visit the one at El Escorial.
  • It's beautiful and very old, yes, but it's not exactly what I think of when I hear tourist attraction. It was a very brief sight to see, at it's exactly what you'd expect a university to be...just old. Not saying it was bad, it's just not something I'd recommended to a friend to spend their time on.
  • Hola! I am the director of AIFLC from INDIA from the city beautiful CHANDIGARH.I had a great experience to talk with their team to apply for long term visa to study Spanish as I am teaching French since 15 years and studying French everyday with my students a new word. I wrote them for me to study Spanish in their university because it is one of the prestigious university in the world for Spanish language.Sooner I will apply for long term visa to enhance the culture of Spain and I will introduce a new language in my C.V.I would love to give this university five stars and wish them all the best for future.

  • I was only here for a brief tour of the university and have not studied there. The architecture is exquisite and it is very interesting to see the old lecture theatres and defense halls. It is a stark contrast to a modern university but with a beauty that is hard to find these.
