University of Salamanca

Salamanca's University was one of the greatest centres of learning in medieval times and Miguel de Cervantes and Hernán Cortés are just two of many famous Spaniards who studied there. Christopher Columbus lectured there. It is a pretty splendid building too, especially the façade facing the Plaza Patio de Escuelas Menores.
