Lovely city, small enough to get around easily, lots of parking. Just wandering around is fun. The Casa Lis is an entertaining museum, if you like Art Deco. I don´t, but it was lovely anyway.

Salamanca is amazing for its old town, full of historic and beautiful carved sandstone buildings. Beware of opening and closing times as from 1 - 4:30 most stores, museums and places you may want to visit are closed. Plan your days with this in mind and be aware that the Tourist Office also closes, has incomplete information and does not... More

Salamanca is one of the most beautiful cities we have been to. This is our second visit and there is always something new to see. It will not be our last visit either. It is well worth a stop over if your traveling through this side of Spain.

Salamanca is a beautiful city with many Renaissance buildings all built from the same stone and some lovely squares and gardens. The Plaza Mayor is particularly impressive. If staying outside the old town it is a steep walk up into the town but well worth the effort.

Salamanca has many great buildings and restaurants. The city has many things to see and not stuffed with thousands of tourists. Other cities are close that are worth seeing. People are friendly and worth a day or two to visit and take in the historical sites and University. :)

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

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
