Salamanca City Guide
Salamanca is an ancient university town, graceful and elegant.
Central Plaza Mayor seems to be the shortcut from anywhere
to anywhere else and serves as the city's social node with many
pubs and restaurants inviting to stay for a glass of red wine. 'Casa
de las Conchas' (House of Shells) is aptly named and quite a
sight. 'Catedral Nueva' (new cathedral) features an impressive
Gothic entrance and interior with an exceptionally harmonious use
of space and light. Its spires are used by storks for nest building.
'Catedral Vieja' (old cathedral) is only slightly less breath-taking.
The ancient Roman bridge offers beautiful views over Salamanca and
its two cathedrals.
Mountainous northern Extremadura are nearby and offer a multitude
of leisure activities. Beautiful 'Las Hurdes' are largely
untouched by tourism with slate houses and green pastures.
Study at Salamanca University
Salamanca university is one of the most traditional academic institutes
of Spain which enjoyed world wide reputation for a long time and
almost faltered in the 18th century due to lack of students. Today,
it has regained some of its glory and instructs about 45,000 students
in a broad selection of academic subjects.
