This is the university city par excellence. Simply by walking through its streets you'll feel the centuries of history, art and knowledge. Known as the 'city of thought and learning', when we speak of culture, we speak of Salamanca.Read more...

What to see Salamanca is the perfect city for exploring on foot, with a historic centre that has been declared a part of our World Heritage by the UNESCO. In the pedestrian streets of its historic quarter you'll see the Casa de las Conchas house, with its unusual façade adorned with over 300 shells, the Clerecía building, and –of course– its famous university. This was the first university established in Spain, and is one of the oldest in Europe. Don't forget to follow tradition and look for the stone frog hidden on the front –if you find it you'll be rewarded with good luck. On your visit to the cathedral you'll see two buildings joined together: the New and the Old cathedral. Get your camera ready, because the mediaeval towers offer spectacular views over the city. Gastronomy In the historic quarter you'll have a chance to sample typical products such as the various cured sausages, ham from Guijuelo, and the popular snack known as 'hornazo', a pastry filled with egg and other ingredients such as pork loin, chorizo, cured ham… Nightlife Salamanca's nightlife is famous throughout Spain, and the city has a lively student atmosphere both day and night. Nature The plants and fruit trees in the Calixto y Melibea Garden will take you back to the scene in the well-known Spanish comedy entitled 'La Celestina'.
