We turned up here, on the E edge of Salamanca old town, just before lunchtime closing. It seemed locked up so we turned away, only to be called back by a lady who took us on a personal guided tour. She didn't speak any English or French but was so expressive that we understood most of what she said. It's... More

The outside of this building is quite plain but once inside, there are multiple reasons to be awed by the art and architecture. The altar is the centerpiece.

The lady escorts you to various parts and then lets you look around yourself or at times accompanies you. There are lots of wonderful things in this convent including medieval wall frescoes which were discovered relatively... More

We visited this during our recent trip to Salamanca. At first, when we turned up, we couldn't work out how to get in, even although there was a timetable of guided tours (they seem to run over 50 minutes from 9.30 when they're open). Another visitor managed to find a nun and we were able to go on the tour.... More

It is sort of tricky to find the place, even more so to get inside, as it is an actual convent, so they have a very strict schedule of admission. Nevertheless, once you manage to get inside, you would not regret it, a huge collection of dolls and figurines is delightful, and this alone justifies the very modest price they... More
