We had a day trip to Salamanca as part of our European river cruise and wished we'd been able to stay longer. It is a wonderful city with a small town feel given all the windy, cobble-stone streets, small shops displaying hanging legs of ham, inexpensive leather goods and friendly residents.
Plaza Mayor is of course, an impressive square full of laughter, food and amazing architecture. Be sure the visit the Library of Shells but just across the road, we also climbed the 187+ wooden steps of the Scala Coeli - well worth the spectacular 360o views of the city. There are many other attractions like the old and new cathedrals and the university district, but we just enjoyed exploring the little shops, listening to buskers, people-watching and being part of the daily life of this quaint and lively city.
Not to miss if you are in this part of Spain.
