Description

The historical centre of the old city contains important examples of Salamanca’s architecture and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1988. The best places to visit are the Cathedral, the Casa de las Conchas, the University, the towers of La clerecía and it magnificent Plaza Mayor.

We can start our tour in the Plaza Mayor and the cathedral complex. The Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin is one of the two cathedrals of the city, together with the Old Cathedral. Built between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, combines late Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque styles. It is the second largest cathedral in Spain in terms of size and its bell tower, with a height of 110 meters, is also one of the highest in Spain. During the restoration of the Ramos gate (north), in front of the Anaya Palace, in 1992 the stonecutter following the tradition of incorporating a contemporary element in each restoration sculpted the figure of an astronaut on the left flank. Do you want to try to discover it?

If we continue walking a few meters we find the Historical Building of the University, here we will be entertained for a while as children look for the frog figure in its facade; inside, we can find spaces like Fray Luis’ classroom, or the ancient library.

We will also pass by the Casa de las Conchas, famous for its facade decorated with hundreds of shells and with a beautiful cloister; directly opposite we will find the Clerecía building and Pontifical University. The Clerecía building towers are another stunning viewpoint of the city as part of the visit to Scala Coeli.

To finalize our day we can take a stroll through the Roman Bridge and enter the Orchard of Calixto and Melibea. Visit the Casa Lis, a beautiful modernist palace of colorful stained glass, which hosts the Museum of Art Nouveau Art Deco. Afterwards, we can visit the Convent of San Esteban or the Convent of the Dueñas, La Cueva de Salamanca and the Patio de la Salina, an old salt pond.

If you wish to visit any of these buildings or have a local guide, please let us know and we will manage it.
