Our rating: 7.80
Overall rating:

Salamanca stands apart from the main tourist destinations of Spain and has less tourists then popular cities. The main attraction is the entire old city, which in 1985 was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We flew over the city a little bit, that is the photo from above.

We lived in a hotel Puente Romano de Salamanca (booking.com). It is conveniently located, just outside the Roman Bridge, so in the evening you can stroll along the promenade and see the evening city. We took a room on the top floor with a large terrace which overlooking the cathedral

Somewhere outside the city was a thunderstorm, so we were lucky to see a rainbow, which fell straight to the cathedral.

Cathedral in Salamanca consists of the Old Cathedral and New Cathedral. They stand side by side, so it seems that this is one cathedral. Upstairs there is an observation deck, be sure to go upstairs, way up is quite interesting.

The University of Salamanca is located to the left on the previous photo. It was founded in 1254 and is one of the oldest in Europe. Walk around the streets of the old town and find university courtyards.
