Stunning building and treasures inside. The gilt altar is a sight to behold. The artifacts - bibles and ivories are quite amazing.

Very interesting historical site. One of our favorites. From the plateresque facade that stands out sitting high on its square, to the graceful Cloisters, there is much to admire.

From all the monuments in Salamanca, this monastery stood out. Plan a few minutes extra to take a break in the cloister

Beautiful convent literally behind our hotel Hospes Palacio De San esteban and the courtyard was the view from our room. In my opinion better than the old cathedral. The small museum within the convent holds incredible historic items and is also worth seeing.

After admiring the cloisters and the painted wooden ceilings and them we wandered through a small chapel and into a side entrance to the main church. Very impressive indeed.

Not sure why, it is a beautiful building and with lovely cloisters but there is something about the actual church which did not appeal to either of us. It is certainly worth the visit, just not a place I would wish to return to.

Visiting this place is a must! In my view better than the old and new cathedral! The building is in great shape and tells her story itself. In every area or room you,ll see surprises.

During our 2 days in Salamanca, we enjoyed visiting this convent. Larger than initial impression, the convent reveals much beauty and history. Recommended.

We had to wait until it opened after lunch to see it, but it was worth it! This is and was an educational center for the Dominican order and it contains much of their history. It also includes the place where Columbus came to ask...More
