  • 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.

  • We have chosen us ahead of the guided tour, which lasts approximately half an hour and has a few fixed schedules. They explain the history and curiosities of the Pontifical University. You can climb the towers and see the bells and the wonderful views of the city.
