One can go around the central square but again and again something will be bringing you back to that center where the sun stands in a very center and your shadow disappears for some time. You can sit next to others and feel eternity, infinity, time... And try to find the secret of the Time...

The Casco historico of Salamanca, is just beautiful. It has great historic buildings with its own identity. You can easily visit it by foot, everything is near each other. From the historic buildings I could recomend the Plaza Mayor, the University and the Cathedrals. But you can visit much more things.

Freezing cold early February but great to avoid the crowds of Summer! We downloaded an adequate city guide although the directions were a little suspect.

Get yourself into Plaza Major, have a couple of drinks and watch the world go by. While doing so, get out a local map or go onto the Internet and bring up all the walkable sites that are within a 5-10 minutes from where you are. There are the buildings associated with the University, Casa del Conchs - which is... More

Because it remains a university city, Salamanca is full of excellent tapas bars and a variety of excellent restaurants. It is also a gorgeous old town built with the golden stone from the nearby quarries of Villamayor. The cathedrals and the university and worth a look, and the Plaza Mayor is undisputed most beautiful in the country. Take your camera... More

The old heart of Salamanca is simply beautiful, with loads of squares and streets that take you back to another time. Really worth the visit.
