The University of Salamanca
The University of Salamanca was founded in 1218, gaining a reputation outside of Spain as a great cultural and teaching centre.
The university building has a square base and a central courtyard with surrounding galleries. Its artistic interest lies in its unique Plateresque façade. Alongside the university, we find the Lesser Schools, which have similar artistic analogies on their fronts. The ceiling of one of the lecture halls was painted by Fernando Gállego. The university currently has over 2100 teaching staff.
