Diego is a very good guide and he gave us a very interesting tour of the old town. He mixed his extensive knowledge of the history of the city with a pleasant and occasionally humouress presentation of unusual facts.
Thank you so much, Paul! Wonderful the time we spent together! We really hope you finally decide to walk the "Camino" sooner or later!

Highlights of a Free Tour in Salamanca

Salamanca encapsulates many essences of the best of Castile, including its stunning sandstone architecture. Most tourists start their Free Walking Tour in Salamanca at the imposing Cathedral, constructed between the 16th and 18th centuries in two styles: late Gothic and Baroque. But Salamanca’s symbol is the Plaza Mayor, a grand square built in the traditional Spanish baroque style and a popular gathering area lined by restaurants and souvenir shops. In the compact Old Town, travelers will immediately find other monuments, such as the Monastery of San Esteban, the surprising Casa de las Conchas (decorated with more than 300 shells, symbol of the order of Santiago), Monterrey's Palace or Anaya Palace. Crossing the Tormes River, travelers can find the perfectly preserved Roman bridge of Salamanca. It’s a perfect spot for romantic selfies! Additionally, Salamanca offers many places to enjoy panoramic views; La Clerecia Church and the Ieronimus Tower in the Old Cathedral are famous viewpoints.

Things to Do in Salamanca

Although maybe less internationally famous than Basque or Valencian food, the Castilian cuisine is a wonder to enjoy on any trip to Salamanca. Travelers joining Free Tours in Salamanca, should absolutely book a Free Food Tour or a Cooking Class to discover the joys of ‘hornazo’, ‘perrunillas’, ‘cheese with quince’, ‘jeta’ or ‘doughnuts of Ledesma’. There is an amazing range of traditional restaurants to try, but you can start by taking a look around the stalls of the Central Market. There you will find hams, cheeses, chorizos, sausages, local wines and many other wonderful typical ingredients. After lunch, go to the unexpectedly quirky Casa Lis Art Nouveau and Art Deco Museum or explore the life of notorious writer Miguel de Unamuno in the museum and library devoted to the author. By night, travelers won’t regret exploring the wonderful tapas & wines bars, taverns, concert venues, clubs and sparkling nightlife of this energetic university town.
