This very beautiful city is known as the city of thought and knowledge, but here you will also find art. The old town has the UNESCO World Heritage designation.
Places such as Plaza Mayor (Main square), dos Catedrales, Vieja y Nueva (two Cathedrals, Old and New), Casa de las Conchas (House of the Shells) and the Universidad (University) are just a few musts you should not miss if you visit Salamanca.
I arrived in Salamanca the morning after a big snow and I found the city as you can see in this second pic; the first one was taken one day later.
Maybe this link helps you to decide to visit Salamanca sooner than you expected. more travel advice
The primitive Cloister is almost destroyed due to the earthquake that took place in Lisbon (Portugal) in 1.755.... more travel advice
