I studied abroad in salamanca this past summer and my fondest memories take place in the plaza. Just sipping sangria watching fifa games was incredible. The most beautiful plaza in the world. Nothing compares. A tip: meet friends under the clock, just like the locals do.
Every evening is not when there is a national soccer match; it is an incredible place to spend an evening or even more than 1 evening. Have a beer, watch people go by, meet someone and see life the way we rarely see it in America - people enjoying being around other people.Dont buy too much; getting ripped off is easy.Watch out for pick pockets.Visit the university campus; old city is all around you.
Very large plaza. Always with many people. The center of Salamanca day and night. here you can find an information center about the city and go everywhere.
While we were there they had a concert in the square and it was great to watch the performers and all the locals having a ball.
Grab a drink, some friends and just enjoy a warm afternoon in this beautiful plaza! Great place to grab tapas as well
This is th emost amazing Main Square in the world, besides the one in Brussels (Belgium). Do not miss it. It is certainly the most elegant one in Spain. Built in sandstone in 1729 by famous Churriguera architects and Andrés García de Quiñones, it is a lively place full of life. Nice shops, restaurants, bars make it even more attractive. Do spend an evening in the summer in one of the outdoor cafés and you can here the "TUNA" sing troubadour songs.
So big and beautiful! To take the most beautiful photos go at night and at sundays the place gets really familiar with a lot of kids running around, it is very nice!
Plenty of frescoes, monarchs chronology,convienent shopping nearby, information booth under arcades.
Beautiful. Sitting out in the warm evening was great with families and young and old all so relaxed and Spanish ... though what else would one expect.
Like Plaza Mayor in madrid, but in a better condition. And cleaner! A must see. Our hotel window overlooked the square.
