You can walk and pray there. It feel cool inside while the temperature was extremely hot outside today (june 2018)

Really impressive compared to the cathedral. There is an admission to get in and a guided tour. I happened to get the last tour of the day but it was in Spanish. Location is just between Plaza Mayor and Cathedral. Unique experience.

The old church is huge and the alter is a little less dramatic than some others in Spain however well worth checking out. Entrance is free and you have access to the smaller prayer rooms as well.

Salamanca is well-known because of its historical patrimonium such as churches, cathedrals, university and monuments. However, this one isn't as attractive as many others nearby. If you stay for a couple of days, week of even a whole month, don't lose your time by visiting...More

Compared to other churches in Salamanca, St Martin is relatively small. However, this is a historical site that was being restored when I visited. The Church is listed in the UNESCO world patrimony list. You can see many reliefs, especially inside the church. One of...More

San Martin sits at the opposite end of the street from the Cathedral. It is a gem of a small church. I am in love with the exterior. Be sure to look to see if the storks are nesting. There is a huge nest on...More

There's a notice on the door asking tourists not to go in during services, but to come back later, after the service. In mid-May 2014, though, the church only seemed to be open when there was a service on. Otherwise the door was closed.

Count Martin Fernandez built the San Martin Church in the 12th century and the Romanesque architecture of this church is one of the best in Spain. The main retable was created by the famous architect and artist Alberto de Churriguera in 1731. The floor plan...More
