It’s hard to miss this restored 1483 house on the street between the University and Plaza Mayor because the facade consists of 400 simulated scallop shells, the symbol of Santiago (St. James), the patron saint of the Reconquista. It was created by a medical professor at the university as a tribute to the pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela in Galicia. The region of Castilla y León maintains a tourist office here.
