La Rana de Salamanca, Salamanca

4.1
Guarantee yourself good luck all year by finding La Rana de Salamanca, sculpted into the façade of the Escuelas Menores of the University of Salamanca. Being the first in your group to spot the weathered frog remains a popular challenge for both students and tourists. Detailed sculptures of Catholic kings, popes, cardinals, and skulls adorn the rest of the highly detailed Plateresque entrance, which was finished in 1553.

  • No need to waste time looking for a frog, there's much better to see in the city. Except to want to play tourists in a cartoonish way.

  • Finding it is not easy, because the facade of the University is very worked. She's beautiful. They say that the student who sees her have good luck in the studies and if they have an important exam they come to see it. I've done it.
