“Grandiose Settings”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

These visits always impress me on how the clergy had an upper hand on all thing in the Middle Ages in all European countries.
This location is impressive also by its size and the magnitude of the rooms and facilities. It is important to visit these sites to better understand where we come from and how these institutions served as models or guidelines for centuries that followed. It is a must visit when in Salamanca.

“A classic jesuit college”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Interesting view of a university specially built for the Company of Jesus , the jesuits, the pictures around the cloister depict the life of St. Ignatius of Loyola. The auditoriumis amazing, the "retablo" in the church is classic from those times and the view of the city from the towers is great. Highly recommended.

“interesting history in salamanca”
Reviewed 6 February 2013

a very interesting guided tour, only in spanish of the university. very well kept and many part are restored their is no english cards and the tour is in spanish but still worth the 3euro to take the tour, the clumb to the tower is nice with a good view on a clear day. Salamanca is a nice city if you have a car for about one day visit
