Salamanca is a small city, and it is very pretty and charming. There are a lot of old buildings/architecture, cobblestone streets, etc. Especially downtown and in the area where the university is. There are also a lot of outdoor cafes and restaurants, and lots of shops, with Spanish pop music blasting out into the streets. There are also a few street vendor and performers. Salamanca is a popular tourist destination, but it's never overcrowded or overrun with tourists. The small town atmosphere is never too busy or fast-paced, but not sleepy either. It's nice to walk around town and explore different parts of the city. Whether it be an old building, fountain, little shop, outdoor market, park, street performer, etc, there's always something interesting at every corner.
Salamanca's city centre is on Unesco's world heritage list. This means that everything is worth seeing! There are so many monuments, old streets and little courtyards.
