The university is over 800 years old, and was built with no expense spared. As a result, the campus is truly beautiful, especially the famous façade. Trying to find the frog atop the skull is a bonus extra piece of fun.

Travel through the student filled streets to this spot then have some fun finding the frog on the skull. Many other fun sculptures can be found to amuse as well.
