The University of Santiago de Compostela-USC is a public university in the city of Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain.
The university traces its roots back to 1495, when a school was open in Santiago. Pope Julius II approved the foundation of a university in Santiago but "the bull for its creation was not granted by Clement VII until 1526. In 1555 the institute began to separate itself from strictly religious instruction with the help of Cardinal Juan Alvarez de Toledo and started to work towards developing other academic fields.
Today the university's facilities cover more than 1,300,000 square meters. In terms of human resources the university has more than 2,000 teachers involved in study and research over 42,000 students and more than 1,000 people working in administration and services.

Fine central courtyard view of the weathered Romanesque/gothic architecture of the Santiago de Composteta University.
Another good reason to saunter on the Camino de Santiago.
And I discovered many good reference sources on the Camino on the internet.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello, excellent reposeful view of the scholar in the courtyard. So many wonderful places to explore in Galicia. that region of Spain is also known for a particular variety of grapes for winemaking. Superb composition and nice border on your image.
