Visited Salamanca as part of an organised coach trip, beautiful journey from Segovia. On entering Salamanca I was surprised that the new city buildings were very well built trying to blend in with the old historic city. Clean and well organised roads, lovely old bridges. On entering the old gates to the historic Plaza Mayor you see a plaza to... More

The historic quarter of Salamanca is beautifully restored, nice and neat. Really impressive urban history.

Of course Salamanca is famous for its old square and rightly so. Maybe not as large as some, but the architecture and just the feeling of the place is something very special and worth seeing. In fact, the whole old town has a stately kind of elegance that is different from the other cities in Spain we visited. It must... More

A old town, with all kind of people. The University gives young and beatiful people. On the other hand, old citizens, walking or talking through nice streets and restaurants. Is The "jamon" here, the best from Spain? I don'nt know if, but is very, very, very tastefull. Don't miss!

The first time I visited here was 14 years ago and I'd forgotten how beautiful it was ( maybe jaded with too much travelling at the time). It is still one of the most beautiful cities and a great place to study Spanish and spend a few weeks. Endless wandering through the streets brings you to beautiful buildings and old... More

This is my second tme here, the first time was 20 years ago, but it is timeless and remains the same. The city is a like a jewel, everywhere you look you want to take a photo. The oldest university in Spain, the buildings are phenomenal. This city is must on any tour to Spain.

Spent a month traveling through Spain, Portugal and France camping during June 2014. Arrived in Salamanca after crossing the Picos De Europa, what a change from mountains to crossing vast plains with only the occasional vehicle every 50 kilometers! Set tent at camp site Don Quixote just outside city, decent site. The old city is absolutely fabulous, an absolute must... More

Beautiful city and old historic center. One of my favourite places in Spain, so far! Between the Plaza Mayor and the old and new cathedrals, there are lots of beautiful old buildings, squares, gardens etc. to visit. Definitely worth a visit.
