Where to stay in Salamanca

Known for its uniform sandstone grid of historical buildings, the compact city center is often considered Salamanca's main attraction. Staying in the historical center allows you to explore the many iconic landmarks, quaint plazas, and majestic architecture, as well as experience the lively tapa and wine culture. Tucked away in the cobblestone streets of the center are a number of historical hotels that represent the city's rich cultural heritage, or you can opt to stay at one of the many family-owned pensions that dot the area for a more affordable accommodation option.

  • Brilliant museo fantastic contrast with the rest of salamanca. A great collection from the art deco art Nouveau periods
  • Incredible place to visit in Salamanca. It is a must for modernisme lovers. The new terrace is a lovely place to take some quiet drinks after the visit with views to El Tormes river.
  • A grand place to visit, don't miss the grand front doors. Take time to soak up the atmosphere in the cafe. One of the most beautiful museums I have visited with exquisite collections. Not too fussed about the doll collections.
  • Pretty cool but the staff were extremely rude especially if you don't speak Spanish. I know this for a fact as I visited with a mix of speakers and non-speakers. Finally the no picture policy is outdated and unnecessary. But I took one anyway just to spite them. LOL.
  • Nice museum tucked into a quaint street just off the cathedral square (Salamanca)
