Enjoy an unforgettable experience, today in Salamanca, with the help of a specialized local guide, that will make you live and feel the Salamanca of the Golden Age, visiting the interior of its golden monuments, where illustrious professors of the stature of Fray Luis de León left their mark, Francisco de Vitoria, maestro Salinas and Unamuno. We will visit the historic center of Salamanca also called Roma la Chica; the Athens of the West because of its light and the Golden City for the incomparable color of its stone, for which Salamanca is undoubtedly the best representation of the Spanish platerésco. Salamanca is a Renaissance city in all aspects. The tour may be billinguel.

Took a group of students to this as part of planned visit to Salamanca, wasn’t really looking forward to it but how wrong I was. It was brilliant. The tour was all in Spanish but the hand out was English. Lots of lovely costumes. Great history of the birth of Bull fights and the different people involved. Some nice art and sculptures. A few items for students to try on and dress up in. Several bulls heads and other items taken from the bulls as souvenirs. The curator couldn’t have been more helpful we muddled through with our few words of Spanish and is few English

I am interested in the Toro so we went to the museum. Bull fighting is not my thing But the history of the fight and the champions of this activity were very interesting. It would have been nice to have English with the major exhibits or an audio guide. Having said that you can still look at everything and get a real feel of what was life I the 50s to present day. Well worth the 3 euros to get in

I brought a student group here on a whim on a rainy day. It was a great experience! The guide was great - although the tour was in Spanish, he spoke slowly and clearly and it was easy to understand. He gave me time to translate the parts I thought they might not understand. They were very knowledgeable and we finally learned about the traditional button of Salamanca - something no one else had explained very well! The tour gives a thorough overview of bullfighting, which every visitor to Spain should learn about. It is small, so if you do have a group of ten or more you may want to reserve a visit ahead of time.

At only two euros, the bullfighting musuem in Salamanca is worth a visit especially if you are in town for a bullfight. The musuem is divided into three sections. The first section has many bull heads and other art work depicting bulls. The next section is all about the many famous bullfighters of Salamanca. Costumes, swords, photographs, models, and articles are all displayed. The last section has all kinds of art work depicting bullfighting. Positives of this museum: Although small it is crammed full of things to see. The director of the musuem is excited to share his extensive knowledge of bullfighting. Cons: The musuem smells of cigarette smoke. The exhibits are all in Spanish. My group visited with a guide so she was able to translate what we didn't understand. This small tucked away musuem is worth the effort to seek it out for a hour or two.
