Universidad Pontificia and Iglesia de la Clerecía:

Universidad Pontificia e Iglesia de la Clerecía

Leaving Plaza Mayor by way of Plaza del Corrillo and going down Calle Meléndez, you'll come to the impressive facade of the Universidad Pontificia of Salamanca, which abuts the church named Iglesia de la Clerecía. A private Catholic university, Universidad Pontificia emerged as a complement to the Universidad de Salamanca in the 19th century when the liberal governments eliminated degrees in theology and canonical law. Its facade and towers are among the most beautiful and grandest works of Baroque architecture. It's worth seeing from the outside.
