Salamanca is the capital of the province of the same name. It’s home to the oldest university in Spain and is an important university city, and a popular site for tourism as well.

The Old City of Salamanca is a World Heritage Site, and it’s here that most of the sightseeing around Salamanca can be found. Places of note include Casa de las Conchas (decorated with hundreds of shells), the famous Plaza Mayor where restaurants and cafés can be found, and of course the university itself. Because so many of the buildings in Salamanca are made out of golden sandstone, the city has earned the nickname La Dorada, or ‘Golden City’. You can travel around the Golden City fairly easily on foot  and all the major sights are within walking distance of each other.

Salamanca’s restaurants offer tourists some incredible dishes the city is famous for, such as Hornazo. Throughout history, this delicious pie was eaten during the Lunes de Aguas festival and although the festival is still celebrated this delicious delicacy can now be enjoyed all year round.
