Travel Tips for Salamanca

Salamanca Tip

by SusanneBeck

We walked around to get a feel for the city, not realising that Salamanca has so many delights scattered in almost every part. There is nothing like wondering down narrow streets only to arrive at a magnificent cathedral, glistening in the sun, looking like it’s been built with gold. There were so many shops too, and little cafes like the “Erasmus Café” we found. Being foreign students studying abroad, we are known offcially as “Erasmus” students so found it quite funny to find a café of this name.

Torre del Clavero

by Redang

Torre del Clavero (Clavero Tower) is part of the palace of Sotomayor. It was built in the 15th century. It has a square base that turns into an octagon as it goes up. Now, it houses the offices of the Salamanca Provincial Government.

- Address: Calle Consuelo

- How to get there: From Casa de las Conchas, take Calle Jesús to Plaza de Colón, cross it and you will reach Calle Consuelo, then walk along it (to the left), and there it is.

Well, as I was staying in...

by SusanneBeck

Well, as I was staying in Caceres, I got the bus there. It took 4 hours but only cost about 9 euros each way. Buses are so cheap in Spain and you can get to Salamanca from most cities.
It´s easy enough to see the sights on foot, and the good weather makes it more enjoyable.

University of Salamanca

by andal13

This University was the first one in Spain; it was founded at 1218, but its frontage was built at 16th century, in plateresque style. Of course, to visit this University is a duty for any illustrated human being.
The famous quote "Quod Natura non dat, Salamantica non praestat" (What nature does not give, Salamanca does not lend)refers to this University.

Esta Universidad fue la primera en España; fue fundada en 1218, pero su fachada fue construida en el siglo XVI, en estilo plateresco.
Por supuesto, visitar esta Universidad es el deber de cualquier persona ilustrada.
La cita "Quod Natura non dat, Salamantica non praestat" (lo que la naturaleza no da, Salamanca no lo presta) hace referencia a esta Universidad.

The Cathedral and other churches

by fairy_dust

In the Plaza de Anaya, there is a huge cathedral, and it's absolutely beautiful. Both inside and out. I went to Sunday Mass at that cathedral, and one of the things I loved most about the inside was the beautiful statues of saints. Josh also loved the cathedral and longed to play his trumpet inside it, because of the high ceilings and big spaces. Unfortunately, he wasn't allowed.

There are carvings around one of the doors that have something unusual included - an astronaut! There is also a monster with an ice cream cone near the astronaut. A local man pointed those out to me. Apparently, this cathedral is newer than a lot of other churches in town, and the builders wanted to add a modern touch to it.

As for other churches, they're all over town. Spain is historically Catholic, so there are old churches in every part of the downtown area.
