What a beautiful Plaza Mayor, particularly when illuminated at night. Although the square was huge, it was crowded with locals and tourists enjoying the restaurants and atmosphere. Although beautiful during the day, it was well worth making the effort to visit again during the evening.

Should be visited in spring time. In winter you don't find it exciting, and don't feel like walking around or sitting at a terrace. The place is close to the magnificent monuments.

Always buzzing with people, very friendly bars and delightful, tasteful Christmas music playing as a background to the lovely little nativity in the centre. Stunning at night

What is more Spanish than a classic Plaza Mayor and the one in Slamanca has to rival Madrid. Surrounded on all sides by colonnaded walkways with a variety of shops, restaurants and coffee houses this is the place to do your evening strolling and watching. Clustered around the outside of the Plaza are street vendors, musicians and a host of wonderful tapas bars and restaurants. GO THERE
