Area Guide: Salamanca
City of Salamanca

Salamanca was famous during the Renaissance due to its important university, one of the first in Europe.

The city is exceptionally beautiful and has many architectural treasures, such as its two cathedrals, one Romanesque and the other Gothic, standing side by side.

The vast central square, the arcaded Plaza Mayor, is considered to be one of the country's most peaceful and beautiful squares. Writer James Michener rated it one of the three greatest plazas in the world.

The city's other buildings feature a blend of medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque styles.
