Travel from Salamanca to La Rochelle, France

by ellsasha

Can anyone advise if there is cheap air carrier from Salamanca to La Rochelle, or if a fairly fast train service is available. I will be travelling in May. Thank you.

easyjet? yes via Bristol or London Gatwick

Re: Travel from Salamanca to La Rochelle, France

This is possibly a crazy idea....but...if you can get to Madrid airport for a morning flight (08.30) to London Stansted then you can take another RYAN AIR flight from Stansted to La Rochelle ! Would get to La Rochelle by 17.50 ! Sounds a bit mad I agree.

By train there is a train that starts at Lisbon and ends at the French border at Hendaye. One overnight service called SUREX and one during the day that leaves Salamnca at 10.30 and gets to Hendaye at 17.13.

Travel Tips for Salamanca

Day and night

by wardy51

I have seen tips on this site urging travellers to stay a night or two to see these places in their glory at night. This is certainly the case here. It is very quiet and peaceful. Having said that there is an area where the younger element congregate creating a lively atmosphere. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the contrasts and atmosphere.
Accommodation is of good standard and there are reasonable rates to be found. THe plaza Mayor at night is brilliant. Plenty of bars/restaurants to sit and watch the world go by.

Traditional Spanish Costumes

by Kerry_Taylor100

I was lucky enough to visit Salamanca on a Saturday, when a wedding was taking place at the Cathedral. I thought this would be a disadvantage, because I would be intruding on the ceremony. However, when the guests came outside to throw the confetti, I had the opportunity to see local people wearing traditional Spanish costumes and for once not just for the tourists. I only wish I had been dressed a little more formally!

Iglesia de San Marcos - statues

by Mikebond

To end this virtual visit of San Marcos, have a look at the statues. The ones showed in this tip portray:
1) Saint Mark the Evangelist;
2) the crucifix hanging from the top of the main apse;
3) the Virgin (Christ's mother, as the inscription says);
4) Mary with the Child (Jesus).

Too many! In my opinion,...

by Krystynn

Too many! In my opinion, Plaza Mayor and the vicinity areas cater to all sorts of taste buds. If you'd like to live like a Spaniard, just pop in to one of the many tapa bars here. If you miss home (already?), you may wish to pay McDonald's a visit.

Or if you've suddenly inherited a vast fortune and don't know how to get rid of it, you can dine in one of the many fine restaurants here - or even at the Gran Hotel's restaurant.

Looking for the frog!!

by Belsaita

Of course, you cannot leave Salamanca without finding the small frog in the old University portico. Old tradition said that if a student spot the frog, he/she will success in the exams... Students or not, you'll find visitors there at any time trying to identify it.

Tip: the frog (actually a toad) is on top of a human skull, as it symbolizes "the sin".

In any case, this is one of the most magnificent and better preserved monuments of the Plateresque style (variant of Renaissance style), built in 1534.
