This is an absolute must. Beautiful architecture. There is a lot to see inside this Convent. Stunning staircase, choir stalls, sacristy and church. Don't miss this. They even provide mirrors so you don't have to strain your neck to look at the gorgeous stone work.

This convent and church are a must see in Salamanca. The architecture, the detailing (check out the facade) are impressive. The newly restored parts are beautifully presented, check out the peculiar flooring). The Stairway that leads to the first floor is spectacular.

Stunning building and treasures inside. The gilt altar is a sight to behold. The artifacts - bibles and ivories are quite amazing.

Very interesting historical site. One of our favorites. From the plateresque facade that stands out sitting high on its square, to the graceful Cloisters, there is much to admire.

Luckily, the Convento de San Esteban was one of the churches which remained opened on a Sunday afternoon. We were passing by and stopped to admire the magnificence of the 16th century golden Plateresque façade without any hope to get inside, but, surprisingly, the Dominican...More

From all the monuments in Salamanca, this monastery stood out. Plan a few minutes extra to take a break in the cloister
