Salamanca

Good day all,

Any recommendations on what to see and do in Salamanca, and breakfast, lunch and evening tapas?

Thanks,

Nate

Salamanca has a large and attractive historic area, so it's great to have extra time to enjoy just wandering around.

I enjoyed its Plaza Mayor. There is the university, the cathedral, and the Casa de las Conchas (house of shells). One can get a great view of the city and cathedral from the far side of the Enrique Estevan Bridge, or from the Roman bridge. Finally, you can search for the frog (Rana de la universidad) on the University facade.

The last time we were there in 2007 a young lady in shabby clothing was begging for money outside the cathedral in the morning. Later that evening we saw the same person, but this time nicely dressed, out on the town.
