Salamanca Cathedral
An amazingly beautiful cathedral that is divided into an old and new church. It was built in the 15th century - but my favorite part is finding the hidden astronaut and ice cream cones in the statues.. and also seeing the church from the river across the way. Also be sure to explore the upper levels!

Roman bridge of Salamanca
The old Roman bridge of Salamanca is beautiful- especially for an evening stroll. There is a great park on the other side, and a beautiful river that the bridge goes over, which was built over 2000 years ago.. also as you’re walking keep an eye out for some conches on the ground which mark a pilgrimage path for the Camino De Santiago!

Delicatessen & Café
When we had our final dinner of the semester, we chose this spot- it’s got a great environment and atmosphere, good food, and is in a good spot of town. Get a few tapas and small places to share, and some cocktails

The Irish Theater
If you’re a college student, this is an awesome spot. If you’re older, disregard this recommendation 😂 But I loved going to the Beer Pong tournaments here- so awesome!! And an awesome deal on Tuesday nights. Always fun 👍🏼

Plaza Mayor
The best central plaza in all of Spain!! I cant tell you how much time I’ve spent here and it’s never enough- especially at night. You also have to go to an event here- the concerts here are amazing, and if you can do the Noche Vieja in December, it’s unreal... be sure to grab a drink or food at one of the nearby spots- or grab ice cream and walk around!

Casa de las Conchas
One of the most famous buildings in Salamanca- which is covered in conches. I don’t remember the history behind it- there is some significance behind the conches as evidenced by the conches that mark the Camino De Santiago. Touristy, but still worth checking out while in town
