Nice and beautiful place to seat and drink a beer or a coffee. At this time of the year, some rain could happen.

An obvious place to visit at all times of day. Best at night for a drink after dinner. Full of people and action all day and night.

This is a classic European main square in a beautiful old town. Some restaurants are -meh- but others are wonderful. The ambience is amazing!

This square is both huge and so beautiful. So much activity and people just enjoying themselves. At night it is absolutely beautiful.

When visiting Salamanca you cant miss Plaza Mayor. The history and of course the beauty of the buildings itself. Under the building at the edge stores are located as well as restaurants. Be ready for crowds.

This plaza is gorgeous in the day or at night but definitely come back at night. It’s stunning!! I might even like it more than Madrid’s!
