The architecture is stunning. I was there on a really rainy day. It was so gloomy, and still, the place was beautiful.

The old city of Salamanca is a very walkable city. It's easy to find your way around and is also within reasonable walking distance of the train station.

Gothic and plateresco, baroque and romanesque - all that can be seen in Salamanca easily especially if you encounter the old university blocks. Those who wish to deepen in the past - this could be your favourite place to dream

If you are near the new or old Cathedrals or near the Conch Shell House you will readily pass by the buildings of the University of Salamanca. I did not have time to go inside, but the outside of the buildings are tremendous to behold.

The University is I believe the third oldest in Europe behind Bologna and Oxford. The old library is an amazing site but one can only get inside to see it with special permission or as a visiting scholar. We were fortunate to see it because my husband gave a lecture in the Psychology Department and the library tour was our... More

It was quite amazing to learn about one of the oldest universities in the world. Because I was there for a study abroad, my tour was in Spanish but even then I was able to learn so many curious things about the university. Each room offered something new and different and it truly felt like you were in a different... More
