Old Town: UNESCO World Heriage

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.

    What an interesting city! Gorgeous churches in particular. Snow is not something Germans associate with Spain :-)

    Salamanca looks like a beautiful place. I've always wanted to discover more of Spain.

    One of the most beautiful squares in Spain? I partially agree! I think it is one of the most beautiful squares ever made! Marvelous under the sunlight, under the moonlight and under the pouring rain too!*N*

    Salamanca is another place I could go to if I wanted to do a second Spanish immersion... I'll definitely keep it in mind, but I'll make sure to go once winter is over, got enough snow here!

    Excellent page about such an interesting place which I missed to visit during my short trip to Spain! Now I know how "very cold winter in Salamanca" looks like! It's very interesting for Russians having very warm winters last time.
