If you only see 1 thing in Salamanca this should be it. Make sure you take the audio guide to get the most of your tour. Filled with beautiful relics, paintings and sculptures, think of it as a lesson in Art History.

New Cathedral of Salamanca is located beside the Old Cathedral and is larger than the Old one. The size of 104m x 48m monument gave the feel of spaciousness. It has combination of gothic and baroque architecture and decorated with features relief. We can enjoy rich and elegant interior design. When we visited the cathedral, there was wedding ceremony at... More

Built around 1600-1700, if I recall correctly, the new cathedral is really old to us. But, the relics and art with the sense that many faithful trod where we stand and fought back the moors add to the awe felt. The town is known for being a repository of knowledge. Even in Cervantes's time this was acknowledged. This adds to... More

Called bu this name because it was restored in the 1990's. Its tower is visible from almost everywhere in the city. Particularly beautiful when seen from across the bridge. It is also worth seeing it by night as it is beautifully lit up. The ceilings, choir stalls and the main chapel areas are beautifully restored. There is a small museum... More

Linked to the old Cathedral just as fascinating and peaceful, not commercialised, not crowded. interesting to see El Cid and the original Geronimo ( That will get you guessing). Take the audio tour, really interesting.

Built during the 16th and 18th centuries. Entry cost us 4 euros each with a audio guide in the language of our choice – English in our case – which was informative and made the visit much more interesting.

If you are travelling through Spain, cathedrals are going to be one of the stopping points in almost every city you visit. Salamanca happens to have two different cathedrals that are joined at the 'hip' that you can tour for only a couple of euros. The architecture inside is very good and there is an audio tour that comes with... More

A must-see! Visiting the cathedral requires a Eur4 fee per person which is worth it as you equally benefit from an audio tour. The architecture and ornate carvings are majestic. On the facade, there are interesting ones dating from 1992 during a restauration work when it seems, one of the artisans decided to innovate and incorporate XXth c. figures. It... More

Excellent audio tour explains the history and importance of this building within the Christian faith. For 4 euros per pensionista it was certainly worth the hour we spent inside these magnificent buildings.
