This plaza is nice and has a lot to do, but the plaza Mayor in Madrid is much nicer. The day we were there they were taking down a display, which made it crowded and not very picturesque.

In contrast to Madrid's Plaza Mayor, the faces on the facades around the plaza are a mix of royalty and scholars (well, there also is Franco). It's much cleaner and very beautiful. Good restaurants around the plaza.

The Square has sandstone buildings built in the traditional Spanish baroque style and is a popular gathering area.
It is lined with many shops.
We could not resist the ice-cream due to the very hot June weather.

The main square of Salamanca was an amazing and beautiful sight. There are many cafes and bars around - probably don't spend too long there, as they are touristy and expensive. Go in the morning, as the sun will shine down on the buildings surrounding the square and make a beautiful golden light of the entire area. Must see!

We were able to see the plaza just as the lights turned on at night. By far the best plaza we saw in Spain. A must see if you are in the area.
