Spain's golden city Salamanca

Delve into the magical radiance of the city of Salamanca pleasing you with marvelous architectural culture, mouth- watering cuisine and magnificent lively atmosphere. Famed as the Golden city, Salamanca glows fabulously in all hues of gold, orange and pink bathed in the light of the setting sun. Be dazzled by the Renaissance style buildings covered with golden sandstone; see the Old and the New Cathedrals and have a look at the House of Shells. Then glide through the city and discover the numerous cafes and restaurants that fleck the central square Plaza Mayor. Take your shopping spree at the Calle Toro and visit some of the traditional family owned stores. The city of Salamanca is one of the most charming Spanish sites where you can listen to the “purest” Spanish and feast your eyes at that architectural masterpiece.
