A well kept secret

Beautiful old university town, large enough to get a good walk and see the campuses, and then settle in for some tapas and good wine or craft beers in one of the many tavernas.

You can walk for hours, if not days, around the old part of Salamanca. Around every corner you will discover beautiful buildings. If a door is open, peer inside as you can often find wonderful courtyards and interiors.

Salamanca's Old Town is a magical trip back into history. The city has Gothic architecture with an underlying Renaissance tendency. You have the impression you are in Florence only without its many museums. Some streets take you back into the 12thc or 15thc century. Go visit the Roman bridge, walk down calle Compañía, Meléndez, la Rua, San Pablo, Serranos, Libreros,... More

What a beautiful place to visit with so much to see. Architecturally blessed with so much history to appreciate. Everywhere you walk is fascinating. So well preserved and certain magic if visiting during the night

Salamanca is an easy town to explore on foot. There is beauty wherever you look. The side streets are quaint and there are photo ops everywhere you turn. You are surrounded by beautifully preserved historical sights everywhere you go. The University is fun to visit and talking to the students and hearing about the capes they are wearing is fascinating.... More

Excellent for a walk through history! I went here on an organized trip back in 2005 when in Spain. It is really nice to walk through the Old Salamanca Historic city ... one of Spain's most historic sites particularly because of the ancient university.

Hugely impressive architecture, museums and cathedrals. Salamanca's ancient city centre is rich in history and culture offering visitors an unforgettable experience. Truly one of Spain's most beautiful and interesting cities.

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
