The uni students have a ritual after exams end of painting slogans with stencils on buildings around town with BULL´S BLOOD! Yes Bull´s blood. It is after all the heart of bullfighting country. There is also a building with intricate carved designs, that has a hidden frog amongst the carvings (a bit like ¨Where´s Wally?¨ ) and legend has it if you find it, without being shown, you will have a pregnancy the following year. I did not even look for it!!! It is also supposed to bring good luck. It is very difficult to see when there, let alone in the photo, so do not spend too much time looking.
Footnote: The Old City of Salamanca is UNESCO World Heritage listed.
