Salamanca

Salamanca is one of the main tourist destinations in Spain, and one of the three inland cities preferred by visitors.

 It is regarded as the Renaissance city par excellence, due to its architectural and urban aesthetics, as well as due to the importance of humanistic thought and the thirst for knowledge brought to the city by this period.

Salamanca has been a World Heritage Site since 1988. It is a surprising city due to its many historic locations and buildings, all in the city centre, and its magnificent old quarter, beautifully preserved, which includes such spaces as the Plaza Mayor, the Cathedral, the Casa de las Conchas, and the University.

In addition, there are such museums as the Casa Lis, with its Art Nouveau and Art Deco Museum, the Museum on the History of Automobiles, the Bullfighting Museum, and DA2, specialising in contemporary art.

This beautiful monumental scenario also serves as the background for a rich cultural life, with an intense activity in cafés, theatres, and exhibition halls. In addition, throughout the year the city hosts such events as the Festival de Luz y Vanguardias, in which artists screen their works onto the façades of local unique buildings; the Castilla and León International Festival of the Arts, where avant-garde art and cultural programmes can be enjoyed.

A large part of the city’s life revolves around the University, one of the oldest in Europe. It also has significant research centres and two renowned hospitals.

Salamanca restaurants and gastronomy are another attraction for visitors, who can find high-quality restaurants providing high-level cuisine. The city also offers a wide range of bars, clubs, and discos where nightlife can be enjoyed, with live music shows in designer venues. The intercultural, youthful university atmosphere makes going out in Salamanca a must.

More than 4,500 hotel beds, 130 meeting venues with a total capacity of more than 30,000 seats…

Its size and modernity make Salamanca a destination that can ensure the success of any event, where a highly professional and outstanding customer service team supports every company.

A modern, safe, sustainable, cosmopolitan city, where tourism, culture, and leisure come together in a very special way for visitors to enjoy.
