    Walking outside the center

    by shavy Written Feb 27, 2014
    Nature outside the city center

    It's always pleasant to take a walk in a beautiful natural setting the idea is even more appealing
    You're sure to find the landscapes attractive for their combination of vegetation and the murmur of flowing waters

    Salamanca is not all about historical building, if you continue walk from the city center, passing through Roman bridge over the Tormes, you'll have the view of the cathedral looking from the otherside of town

    Here, many people doing kayak and you can relax one on the bench in front of the water
    If you have seen enough monuments, strolling outside the center is another option
    Here, you have another point view of the city

    The church of San Marcos is located north of the city, next to the site of the old wall, near the old Puerta de Zamora. Zamora Street, where it is located, and is one of the main arteries of the city

    The location is in the busy street close to the shopping area, the monument has a nice round form

    The perfectly round factory abroad is one of the few existing, the interior is divided into three naves separated by pillars ending in three semicircular apse. It has a very different style

    A tuna strolls through the streets

    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.
