It's delightful to wander the streets of this historic city. The honey colored buildings are lovely and harmonious. There is a lot of street life to enjoy. Lots of nice shops, cafes and restaurants mixed among the churches, monuments and historical sites.

There is much to see as you walk the streets. The buildings are ornate with lovely yellow sandstone exteriors. There are often street musicians playing and much to see. Remember to look up at the amazing architecture and sculptures.

An imposing piece of architecture to say the least. Very ornate main building with wings that totally envelope the square.

For a city with so many places to see and visit the tourist signage is not too good. We had a map before before we arrived so take an eye witness book or down load a map before you go.

A fantastic historic city a short train ride from Madrid but difficult to find the centre as there is no tourist information, directions or maps available at the railway station. (Turn left out of the station and keep walking, then ask!) The tourist office is...More

With Toledo and Granada probably, Salamanca's old city centre is probably the best in Spain. I was living there for six years and I went back in January just for a visit. It is a huge and well preserved city centre with a mix of...More
