Help with transportation to Salamanca

by KokeAC

HELP. I have booked a hotel in Segovia on Tuesday, May 27th and have booked a hotel in Salamanca on Wednesday, the 28th. I am having trouble finding transportation between Segovia and Salamanca. Is there is a train route? A bus company that takes that route? We will not be renting a car.

Re: Help with transportation to Salamanca

There are 5 rail solutions a day from Segovia to Salamanca, according to the German rail website (I use this because the Renfe (Spain) website has become more useless every time they 'update' it).

Each solution has a change of train in Villalba de Guadarrama...essentially, you take a local train from Segovia towards Madrid, and you get off early, and catch a faster train leaving from Madrid out to Salamanca.

The various rail solution are 3 to 4.5 could drive it in 2.25 hours, which makes you wonder if a direct bus would be faster...but I don't know of one...maybe someone else will chime in...

Train option is not very good, as you need to do many km in the opposite direction in order to take the train from Madrid to Salamanca. But if you take two trains with not too much waiting time in Villalba it can be as fast as the bus option.

There is a direct bus from Segovia to Salamanca, but only a couple everyday.
With Auto-Res bus company
One at 07:45 arriving at 10:30am and the second at 14:00 arriving at 16:45.
Cost 9,88 euros.

Travel Tips for Salamanca

Spirits of the Dead

by orlikins

Try to raise the spirits of the dead on top of a hill overlooking's how you do it..
Get a basin. Fill with all sorts of white spirits like vodka, sambuca, turpentine - whatever you can get. Put in slices of lemon/orange to taste. Set concoction alight, whilst chanting some Spanish formula to raise the spirits of the dead. Blow out flame and dip your glass in the basin and drink to the memory of Salamantino students of days gone by. Everyone in Salamanca has to pass through the Plaza Mayor to get from A to B, so if you just hang out there for a while, you get to see the same people going back and forth. It's a large town with a village feel.

I spent only one day in Salamanca, so I am not sure, but I think that a local custom there is being between 18 and 30 years old and being a student!
If you see someone who has not these conditions maybe:
a) He / She is a teacher
b) He / She is a tourist
c) It has no explanation, like the spaceman at the cathedral

Pasé sólo un día en Salamanca, por lo tanto no estoy segura, pero creo que una costrumbre local es tener entre 18 y 30 años y ser estudiante!
Si ven a alguien que no tiene estas condiciones, quizás:
a) El / Ella es docente
b) El / Ella es turista
c) No tiene explicación, como el astronauta de la catedral

Big parks near the outskirts

by fairy_dust

There is a big park outside of the downtown area, but I'm not sure what the name is. It's enclosed by a gate, and once you get in, it's beautiful. There are trees and plants everywhere, and the little paths have archways over them and bunches of grapes hang from them above your head. I didn't eat any, just because I wasn't sure whether it was safe or not, but it looked very pretty, old-fashioned, and charming. Also, there is a ledge where you can look out towards the outskirts of the city. I went on a Sunday afternoon, after going to Mass, and it was nice and calm. The only other person I remember seeing there was a man by the gate who was selling copies of his poetry.

I don´t have a favorite...

by Hosell

I don´t have a favorite restaurant at Salamanca,but I show you some favorites restaurants in other cities,as you can see on this page!.
In the city of Avila: Hosteria LAS CANCELAS. Try the Avila´s speciality CHULETON DE AVILA ( Beef Chop).Is really delicious!

Admission to the Old Cathedral, the Cloister and the Chapels:
Individual: € 1.80.

Pensioners: € 1.50.
