Salamanca City Info Salamanca Hotels

Salamanca Spain is well-known for its very old university and a popular place where you can see hundreds of students passing through the streets and enjoying numerous and beautifully decorated bars until late at night. Every major architectural style from Romanesque to baroque found in Salamanca has an influence of golden sandstone. UNESCO has declared Salamanca as the ‘City of Mankind's Heritage’. On a visit to Salamanca Spain one can’t help but think though the city is large and has advantages of a real city, but at the same time it guards very closely the intimacy of a village. The Plaza Mayor is one of the finest squares in Spain where locals and tourists gather to meet. As a result of the sandstone buildings dotting the map of Salamanca Spain having gained an exquisite golden glow, Salamanca is called ‘La Ciudad Dorada’ meaning the ‘golden city’.

An attraction worth having a look at is the old Romanesque cathedral founded in the 12th century whose dome covers its crossing springs from a double arcade. Adjoining to it is the new cathedral whose architecture is a mixture of Gothic and renaissance influences. During your stay in budget or luxury Salamanca hotels Spain, try not to miss an opportunity of tasting the classic dish- a cocido, which is baked casserole of garbanzo beans. If you happen to be on a tour of Salamanca around Easter time, you can witness the traditional Salmantinian celebration, the ‘Lunes de Aguas’, known as ‘Water Monday’ and celebrated the Monday after the Sunday following Easter. For those who like to freak out at night, there are various night spots for them to enjoy in Salamanca Spain.
