Is there a place to buy an electrical adaptor in Salamanca?

by henrynat

Anyone know a place in Salamanca where I can buy an adaptor to convert a US hair dryer to European voltage? I came thinking I could buy one here. Pretty stupid, I know.

If you are staying in a hotel, check with the desk. They often have adapters to loan out. Otherwise ask for an electronics store or luggage store.

Failing all else, find a beauty shop and have your hair cut. LOL

Even if you find it (I don't think so, these are not easy to find even in big cities) you will need a transformer (US voltage is lower than in the EU) and an adaptor-plug. All this will cost you about the same or more than buying a new small hairdryer that you can use on future travels.

Of course Belsaita is right. I only use my laptop and battery charger and both are dual voltage. I don't know if hair dryers are dual voltage. If not, you must have the voltage converter.

It would be much easier and probably cheaper to just get a cheap European hair dryer. You can keep it for your next trip or you can leave it at your hotel for someone else.

Ops I did not thought that a hairdryer could be dual voltage (mine is not). In this case, you only need the adaptor-plug. You can buy one online, i.e. here:

(sorry for the long link, it was just the first entry on a quick google search!!)

but again, this cost about 9 euros, and you can get a cheap hairdryer for about the same price.

Travel Tips for Salamanca

discover the old city....

by DanielF

discover the old city. Salamanca is a very monumental city and one of the jewels of Spain. Most of the buildings in the old town are made of a golden stone from a quary in the area, which gives the town a very homogeneous look. It is specially lovely at sunset when the last rays of the sun reflect on the golden stones... The wonderful views of the city's towers and spires.

Spanish Meal Times

by pabertra

The first meal a Spaniard has is breakfast, or "desayuno," which is normally around 8 am. Breakfast is very small and normally consists of a cafe con leche (coffee with milk), or tea, magdalenas (small muffin like item), galletas (cookies), or toast.

Around 10 or 11 Spaniards duck into a bar or cafe and have a small snack. Most of the time they order a cana, which is a small beer which includes a free tapa to help absorb the alcohol.

Lunch, or "la comida," is typically around 2pm. The streets, which were once bustling will empty out as people return to their homes to eat. During this time all the shops close and do not reopen until 4 or 5. Lunch is the biggest meal of the day and normally consists of at least 2 courses.

Around 6pm it is typical for children to have a snack, called la merienda, which is normally a small sandwich or a piece of fruit.

Dinner, or "la cena," is normally between 9-11pm and is much smaller than lunch. Dinner is often eaten outside of the home at streetside restaurants with friends and family.

Escuelas menores (patio)

by Carmela71

This is were studies previous to university teaching were imparted.

It is just in front of the Main University building.

Next to the Escuela Menores is the Hospital de Estudio (Hospital of Study), the old Hosptital for the University

The University

by roamer61

The University of Salamanca was founded in the 13th Century. But the fantastic facade of the building, called Plateresque, dates to the Spanish Rennaisance of the 16th Century. Amongst the carvings there is hidden amongst numerous images and designs, a frog. Legend is that if one can find it, then he/she will have good luck. And, be married within a years time!
Inside are an assortment of rooms including a library with books dating back 600 years. Admission is charged to enter.

Strange students

by andal13

Some University students are quite strange... the storks!!! They nest on the top of towers and belfries of churchs and even ancient universities...
In the middle of the courtyard, there is a beautiful sequoia.

Algunos estudiantes universitarios son bastante extraños... son cigüeñas!!! Anidan en las torres y campanarios de las iglesias, e incluso en antiguas universidades...
En el centro del patio hay un hermoso sequoia.
