Enjoy an unforgettable experience, today in Salamanca, with the help of a specialized local guide, that will make you live and feel the Salamanca of the Golden Age, visiting the interior of its golden monuments, where illustrious professors of the stature of Fray Luis de León left their mark, Francisco de Vitoria, maestro Salinas and Unamuno. We will visit the historic center of Salamanca also called Roma la Chica; the Athens of the West because of its light and the Golden City for the incomparable color of its stone, for which Salamanca is undoubtedly the best representation of the Spanish platerésco. Salamanca is a Renaissance city in all aspects. The tour may be billinguel.

This is a lovely architectural stone courtyard and building. Very old and stately. Students are robed in black a la Harry Potter. This city has a very cultural and educational vibe.

You will not happen across this place unless you know it is here or a perhaps staying in the hotel nearby with the same name. There aren’t too many bad buildings to look at in Salamanca and this is no exception, the design is simple but effective. There are lots of interesting things to see inside like the extensive collection of clocks, well worth a visit.

There is more old Heritage in three streets of Salamanca, than in the whole of Oxford.This splendorous courtyard, and the attached side exhibition hall and tubular edifice, are proof of the importance of Spanish Reinnassance in Salamanca, and Spain as a whole. Here, the vernacular, the purely Castilian or Andalusian (Vandelvira) versión of Spanish Rennaisance, its austerity and simplicity, express in what was formally the College of the Irish, and actually serves as a luxury hostel of the Universtity of Salamanca for distinguished proffessors (the court has free access),800 years old, the oldest in Spain, and the third oldest in Europe. The frail nature of its Castilian stones, give it a particular color and charm, old and venerable.

lovely column ringed majestic courtyard in Salamanca college. It is worth a short visit. There may be more to see at this sight, and there may be an entrance fee, but we had to attend an event in a spectacular room upstairs and we had no time to look at the tourist options here.

The Archbishop Fonseca College is where many professors and students live. It has a beautiful patio and the building is from the 16th century. The architecture is from the Spanish Renaissance.
