How many days do I need In salamanca?

by jackflick

I am flying into madrid in August for a wedding and I have a really crazy job, so I am looking for a place to relax before site-seeking in Madrid. Is Salamanca a good choice? How far is it from Madrid? How many days do I need there? Is it a good place for young 20 somethings to hang out? thanks!

that s a lovely city, with many interesting buildings if you like architecture. the city is not big, and a couple of days would be enough to have a look there
it s one of the best options to hang out in spain during the winter because of the university, but even in summer you will find many places quite crowded

it s 200km far from madrid. the only problem will be the very hot weather ...

try to get a hotel close to the main square, you wont need a car, most of the downtown is only for pedestrians ...

cheers

Salamanca is an awesome choice! It's one of my favorite cities. By bus/train, it takes around 4 hours to get there, and tickets aren't very expensive. I recommend at least a week there, if you can. More if possible. There are a lot of great things there, including architecture, the university, cultural activities (especially in the summer), nightlife, etc. Since the University of Salamanca is very popular among foreigners who study Spanish, in the summer it's full of students from around the world. I took summer courses there, and I loved it. If you want more information, check out my Salamanca travel page. It's huge and I have a lot of information in it.

The weather will indeed be hot, but there are swimming pools that you can get in for only 50 Euros in the city. In the nights, you can listen to Jazz in the downtown area and the bar scene is really great. There is an Irish pub if you go under the central passage way from the Plaza Mejor (under the suite with the flags and royal symbols that is really neat and serves authentic "only in Ireland" style ales and lagers. The cathedrals in the area are lovely and worth going in to take photos of. The biggest cathefral is where Columbus got the Queen's blessing for his trip to Hispaniola.

Tapas bars abound with cheap wine per glass and lots of finger food for rock-bottom prices.

There is alot of shopping off of Calle Toro and Calle Ocho and the prices, while not super-cheap, are pretty good, so it's worth staying at least 2 days.

Travel Tips for Salamanca

Paseo de las Carmelitas

by Mikebond

This is maybe the most beautiful street in Salamanca, with all its trees and the lavender in the middle. Look at the third photo of this tip, where the foliage hides the traffic lights! It was a pleasure to have a walk there.

Dealing with the heat

by fairy_dust

A lot of Spanish women carry a fan with them and use it when the day gets hot. Nice hand-painted fans can be bought in any souvenir shop in Salamanca, as well as in some cheaper stores. One of the teachers of the courses I took told the class once that in the olden days, there was even a "fan language" - women would wave the fan a certain way or make certain gestures with it as a way to "send" a message to someone without actually talking to them, but I think the fan language has died out... But if you want to blend in with the Spaniards, use a fan during the hot summer days!

Local bars where you can chill

by fairy_dust

There are a lot of low-key bars all over town, where you can sit down for a drink and chat with your friends.

Once, when I was walking back to my host family's place, a guy my age came out of one of those bars and told me to come in. There were 2 other men (one old and the other middle-aged) there, chatting, drinking, and singing Spanish songs. Of course being the only female in the bar made me a little nervous (especially since the guy my age was a little too touchy-feely and the bartender made a comment about my chest), but they were nice to me and bought me drinks. Anything goes. Most people dress casual.

The House of Shells

by roamer61

The Casa delas Conchas (House of Shells) is a marvelous example of 15th Century Civic architecture. It gets its name from the 300 scallop shells that decorates its front facade. Today, it houses the Tourist Information Office.

Casa Lis Museo Modernista

by acemj

The Modernist Museum is located in Casa Lis, a beautiful bulding dating back to 1905. It was owned by the city and in 1995 was turned into this museum with an amazing collection of porcelain dolls and other collections of decorative arts. You'll find furniture, jewelry and much more here, but it's also worth visiting just for the building itself; the central courtyard and the views over the Tormes River from the upper floors are great.

Tuesday- Friday, 11-2 and 4-7, weekends 11-8
