A beautiful university

An interesting, historic facility, that amazingly is still an active and vibrant school. Not to be missed.

We got the combined ticket with the visit to the towers (note, that you could not pay with credit card). This visit was only guided. The group was big, and there was no language choice, so from my understanding most of the foreign tourists were missing all the explanations. Additionally we were almost running around, and the guide wasn´t waiting... More

This is situated right across from the Casa de Conchos in the heart of the old town. We bought tickets for the towers only . It's quite a climb up but you get great views across the old town. We walked around and looked at the bells and could see some storks nesting close by. You don't need the audio... More

Our hotel steered us in the direction of this as a 'very special place' in Salamanca. We thought, ok, lets see although with a bit of trepidation - 10 euro per person and 2 euro per audio guide. Well, it as a 2 level 'exhibit' with about 12-15 rooms (law room, astronomy room etc). And the rooms were....empty classrooms with... More

Since it it a college town, there is a lively vibe about the city. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and bars... More

Unless you are a fluent Spanish speaker it's not worth signing up for a tour of the interior but the climb up to the bell towers is well worth the money and effort. The views of the cathedral and over the rooftops are superb.

Salamanca is basically a college town. This is the place where students go all over the world to learn proper Spanish. Small but charming with lots of history
