One of the best and beatiful cities I've ever been. Amazing old town, better night life and spotless surroundings. Must walk along the city centre and the river and forget the car outside the city.

Have done extensive traveling in Spain and this center is the one closest to my heart. The buildings are beautiful with a classic appeal. If you like being surrounded by history in a refined city, this is for you. Just to visit the scholarly buildings is a treat. The university itself is amazing. I loved being inside the old library.

Everybody had been talking about how we have to go to Salamanca and what a great place it is to visit. But we were very disappointed. Especially the plaza Mayor is so depressing.

A place with a lot of students, it is like a meeting place, hundreds of students meet here at afternoon or at night to go out for some canas & pinchos (beer and one bit snacks)

The Salamanca area is bustling with vibrant cafes, restaurants and a plethora of historic building and sights. The area is also famous for the calamari sandwich and there are several shops offering this culinary specialty for only a few Euro. Don’t forget to see the Plaza Mayor at dusk so you will be able to witness the whole square light... More

It feels great to walk in this area. Very bustling, very quaint but no light in the morning on the buildings so it is better t wait for the afternoon. Also, free parking spaces are very hard to find there. But everything is close you you can do it in 2 hours or less

we took a relaxed walk in the barrio. there were interesting tapas bars - we visited 2. We went in the late afternoon which was probably way too early to see it when it was really hopping.
