Hotels in Salamanca

Salamanca, located in Castile and Leon, requires time and care to understand it properly. We offer you a selection of some of the most important places so you don't miss a thing: 

If you're staying at a hotel in Salamanca you’ll have time to see the old town which contains a large part of the city's history. Our visit starts at Plaza Mayor, the square at the heart of the city, of a markedly Churrigueresque baroque style. Very close to here is the Romanesque Catedral Vieja(Old Cathedral), from the 12th century, and the Gothic-style Catedral Nueva(New Cathedral) built in the 16th century. The place where the two cathedrals meet is popularly known as “El Patio Chico” (“The Little Courtyard”). 

From among the numerous convents in Salamanca, we suggest the Italian-inspired Convento de las Agustinas, containing paintings by José de Ribera; the 15th century Convento de Dueñas, with its irregular floor plan, and the Plateresque Convento de San Esteban. There are also a great many churches on the city's streets, including San Marcos and San Martín, close to Plaza Mayor. 

The university, the oldest in Spain, has been the seat of learning of many of the finest minds in the country. In Patio de las Escuelas square you find the Escuelas Mayores and Escuelas Menores buildings, which absolutely should not be missed. Other worthy buildings include the 15th century Casa de las Conchas (today a public library). The facade, boasting 350 scallop shells, pays homage to the Order of Santiago de Compostela. 

Close to our hotels in Salamanca are the city's green areas, such as Campo de San Francisco and Huerto de Calixto y Melibea where tradition has it the events portrayed in the 15th century Spanish masterpiece “Tragicomedy of Calisto and Melibea” occurred. 

What to eat At our hotels in Salamanca you can enjoy an extensive selection of especially chosen wines and dishes. When you want to sit down for a break over a meal, you’ll love a good Castilian stew like ternera charra, Guijuelo ham or Arribes cheese, washed down with a Pereña de la Ribera wine.
