Salamanca Monumental Tour
The best way to explore and appreciate my city heritage is walking. Salamanca has a big pedestrian area where you can find all the ancient monuments quite close. You can get a real feel for our past history visiting the old buildings, The new and the old Cathedral, the University building, the House of Shells…. Do not forget Salamanca is an old student city since 1218.
I will lead you into the most significant buildings, taking you back in time. Of course, during the tour we will have time enough for a coffee break, visiting one of the pleasant and typical bars tasting a "tapa" or a Spanish hot chocolate "chocolate con churros"
First we will visit the Old Cathedral because there is the origin of the History of Salamanca.
Later we will enter the building of the univesity with classrooms of this time. We will enjoy a rest for the coffee in a pretty and typical cafeteria before continuing with the visit. Our next destination will be the famous House of the Shells and will finish in the lively Main Square, center the city live.
I can adjust the schedule, duration, and activities to meet your needs. Please let me know of any special request you have.
The itinerary can change depending on the schedule of monuments.

Carmen is passionate about Salamanca her city and imparts so much information without being too serious or heavy. She paced our tour to suit us and we saw and learned so much about the city and Spain too. If you are looking to learn a little about history, religion, politics and the Spanish outlook and lifestyle then this tour is for you and it will not disappoint. Thank you Carmen for a great insight into Salamanca - I can't recommend you too highly.
