    Head here for dinner so you can see the square under daylight and completely lit when darkness comes down. Food and drinks are reasonably priced and good.

    Really beautiful historical centre full of Gothic / Renaissance building in a pure Spanish Style - Plateresque. The area is fully walkable, full of places to see, things to do and places to have a drink or a bite.

    Really nice building, the staff could be friendlier and better educated (especially in the shop), sad that the first university in the Spanish-speaking world has come to this. Remember to find the frog on the façade.

    The whole Salamanca Cathedral with all the parts is just an amazing place to
    visit. For me it maybe the highlight of the 2 weeks travel this time to Spain.
    We visited late at night and the illumination and view were just splendid.

    The building is fantastic, the collection has some nice pieces. It looks particularly appealing at night. Staff was not too friendly and there's a serious no-photography rule. The shop is extremely tempting though!

    Late Romanesque style turning into gothic gives this cathedral an amazing look. The accoustics are fantastic, if you manage to get tickets for any of the concerts held there

    One of the most impressive Plateresque buildings in Salamanca. The cloister is amazing, and the façade has an unbelievable amount of detail - imagine being able to carve all that in stone! I'd say it's even nicer than the cathedrals!

    Lovely late-gothic building with super-detailed decoration carved. The inside has very pure lines. The light/music show at night is nice. Go up the towers if you've got the energy and can handle heights! You can visit together with the old cathedral.

    Drop by the Escuelas Menores to look at this fresco painting that used to be in the university library. It's free and rather interesting! But avoid guided groups at all costs, it's tiny and you won't even be able to hear yourself think

    Around 150 historical vehicles for your viewing pleasure. The most adorable piece is a "600", loaded like Spaniards did in the 60s to go to the beach.

    Salamanca , the old University, and la casa de Las conchas. A building from .ca 1550, with some 300 shells. In front of the Uni Pontificia, 10 minutes walking to the Salamanca University and 15 minutes to the cathedral

    The building, the cloister, the flowers and the mudéjar arches are all fantastic. The nuns also sell confectionery. It feels almost magical.

    Recommended to be able to see the complete cathedral, and the Casa de las Conchas from above. Totally worth it!

    The bridge dates from late first century CE. More than half of its arches are original. The importance of the bridge to the city is testified in the fact it has been part of the coat of arms of Salamanca since the 13th century.
