Salamanca

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, located at the center of Spain’s Castilla y León region. The Historic university town , founded by the Romans, who erected its 389-yard-long bridge, Salamanca widely regarded as Spain most beautiful city, the “Golden City”, and built of local Sandstone, Salamanca is known as a “living museum,” an opportunity to step back in time to the Middle Ages.

See the city’s elegant university buildings, the twin-towered Cathedral, the intriguingly decorated House of Shells, as well as Plaza Mayor, considered the most magnificent main square in Spain.

Salamanca is dominated by its two cathedrals and its university. Founded in 1218, the university is the oldest in Spain and was one of the civilised world’s most important seats of study for over 400 years. The Spanish Inquisition’s records are still kept here, and as early as the 16th century it boasted some 12,000 students. Seeing its immaculately preserved lecture halls with their vaulted ceilings, it’s easy to conjure an image of Christopher Columbus addressing the learned men of the day or legal experts constructing the international laws that originate here.

Explore its tiny streets, medieval squares, traditional shops, gardens and marketplaces. The main square, the Plaza Mayor, is unmissable. Possibly Spain’s finest public square, it was built in the 18th century in Spanish Baroque style with colonnaded walkways all around at ground level, ideal for finding a shaded spot to sit and watch the locals go about their daily lives.

We are certain you will fall under the spell of Salamanca, a real gem of a city.
