Palacio de Anaya (Anaya Palace), Salamanca
After the suppression of the university colleges, the building had various uses, including Civil Government, which is why it is currently known as a palace, although it is actually a college.
The Anaya Palace currently houses the Faculty of Philology of the University of Salamanca.
Next to the school is the Hospedería, 1715, by Joaquín Churriguera, which housed students who paid for their studies by serving other noble and wealthy students who occupied the College. Today it is used for classrooms and offices, and its old stables house the Faculty cafeteria.
The baroque church of San Sebastián, formerly the school chapel and currently the Cathedral Parish, is also attached.
