Come on a journey through the dark and winding streets of Salamanca and discover some of the myths and secrets that lie hidden within its walls. If you love mysteries and sinister tales, then the Free Mysteries and Legends Tour of Salamanca is perfect for you! The tour will take place at night, so you’ll have the opportunity to see this beautiful city lit up whilst experiencing the spooky atmosphere and seeing shadows lurking in the dark! Salamanca is a city full of mysteries, ancient stories, and mythical creatures that you’ll discover as you navigate its streets. At the famous University of Salamanca, guests will hear ghostly whispers along the corridors and see curious symbols on its façade, including a frog, a skull, and an astronaut!

On the Mysteries and Legends Free Tour, guests will spend time exploring the area around the cathedral and the St. Esteban Covent. Not only are these buildings exceptionally beautiful at night, but they are also shrouded in mystery and curiosities. Hear the legend of the Mariquelo, who climbs to the top of the cathedral tower one night every year and listen to the strange myth about the Salamanca Cave, where, according to local legend, the devil used to teach his disciples.

One of the spookiest places in Salamanca, and one that many believe is cursed, is ominously called the House of Deaths. There are many legends about how it got its name. The first is due to the decorative skulls on its façade; the second is much more interesting and gruesome! The myth involves an insanely jealous husband who murdered anyone trying to get into the house! Hear this story and plenty more on the Free Mysteries and Legends Tour. During the tour, do not hesitate to ask your guide as many questions as you like; they will be more than happy to answer them. And, of course, guests will come away with lots of recommendations and tips for the rest of their stay in the city.
