"go to the Plaza Mayor! We got..." Salamanca Favorite Tip by SusanneBeck

Salamanca General: 62 reviews and 70 photos


Favorite thing: go to the Plaza Mayor! We got off the bus, got our maps ready and decided to head to Plaza Mayor. It seemed to be at the centre of everything and was a good a place as any to start. It didn?t take as long as we expected to get there so we were quite surprised when we found ourselves standing in the middle of it. It was amazing! Magnificent buildings all around a square. It was really beautiful and there was such a buzz of excitement in the air. In the centre, there were school children preparing for a music competition and there were lots of people standing around in anticipation. Around the edges were cafes, shops and businesses and also the typical souvenir stalls selling postcards and other such items. There were so many people of different nationalites and it was easy to hear the chatter of, among others, the French, English and German as they sat with their cervezas enjoying the sun. Children were running around happily, business men looked relaxed and lovers walked hand in hand. This was definitely my favourite place to be in Salamanca.
