The best things to do in Salamanca

There's such an amazing variety of things to see in Salamanca that in 1988 the city was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Among the top Salamanca attractions are its two cathedrals. The Old Cathedral was founded by Bishop Jeronimo de Perigord and is of Romanesque and Gothic style, while the New Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin is the seat of the Diocese of Salamanca and was built in Gothic and Baroque styles. The contrast between the two makes them both essential places to visit in Salamanca.

Other unmissable attractions in Salamanca include the Casa de la Concha. It is a building with Gothic and Renaissance and elements and its facade is decorated with over 300 shells and multiple crests and shields. The Plaza Mayor is a great place to go when you're asking yourself what to do in Salamanca.
It's
an area that today is the focal point of the city, where you can relax with a good cup of coffee.

Of course, a lot of the stuff to do in Salamanca emphasises the fact that this is a student city. Its university, the site of a number of exciting Salamanca activities, is the oldest in Spain and was founded in 1218 by Alfonso IX of Leon. More historic buildings include the Convento de San Esteban, the
Unamuno
House-Museum, the House of the Dead, and the Palacio de Monterrey. But it's easy to forget that
one of the best things to do in Salamanca is keep in touch with nature. There's a wealth
of greenways that can be crossed either on foot or by bike, showing that this city is the perfect blend of greenery and urbanisation.
