It’s a pleasant town with great views from castle and cathedral. Some really interesting old churches dotted around the town I’d recommend for an afternoon when on tour or as a day trip from Salamanca.

Visited Zamora on our way to Salamanca. The old town by the River Duera was wonderful very picturesque. Would recommend a stop or stay and visit the historic part of Zamora

Partly medieval city, with ruins of a castle at the far end, overlooking the river Duero. Walls surrounding the old part, and much churches and palacios to discover.

Fabulous town with the most Romanesque churches in Europe, well worth a visit. The history is fascinating & the buildings are beautiful, definitely worth stopping off at & maybe staying overnight. We are staying at the Parador which is very central

Zamora at wintertime was cold, but people were warm and nice. Having siesta could make sense in summer time, but in the heart of winter less so. Nights are so windy, rainy and cold that walking to see sight seeing locations was not easy.
