Great city to visit during 2 or 3 days with family or friends. There are a couple of very interesting buildings here: casa de las conchas, University of Salamanca (the oldest in Spain), Old and New Cathedral of Salamanca, Plaza Mayor and more. The old city is UNESCO World Heritage Site.Recommended for:

Salamanca is a city that is really underrated!
It is compact and clean.
It is easy to see the major sights as they are all together.
It has great hotels that are centrally located and it is inexpensive.
I loved the whole gothic feel!!Recommended for:

I spent two months in Salamanca, studying Spanish. Although I'd suggest studying elsewhere (namely, Andalucia and Southern Spain, where the climate and people are much warmer), Salamanca is a drop-dead gorgeous city. My little apartment was once in the background of a wine ad I saw in a fashion magazine. The entire city is made of brick and stone, and you could simply sit at a cafe in the town square -- one of the largest in Europe -- for weeks before getting tired of it.Recommended for:

Salamanca is home to one of the oldest communities of learning in the world. The University of Salamanca, while held back in some respects by the conservative Spanish crown, was still one of the most important universities in Europe throughout the middle ages and into the renaissance.
