Shuffled among Carthaginian, Roman, and Moorish hands, Salamanca has developed so multifaceted and alluring an appearance that UNESCO decided to draw it on list of the World Heritage Sites. A unique type of sandstone gives its facades a gold-like glow, a maze of narrow streets endow it with a romantic feel, and the oldest Spanish university makes it bustle with youthfulness. Centered on the brilliant Plaza Mayor, spanning the river with an imposing Roman bridge, and cutting the sky with towering monuments, the Old City of Salamanca is a place everybody remembers with awe and fondness.AVARAGE RATING

Salamanca is beautiful, quaint, and exciting. It has a small town feel with a large and very old university centered within it. The people are extremely friendly, and there is a lot of history to uncover. I highly recommend visiting if you enjoy immersing yourself in another culture.
