Salamanca (1 Day)

It will take about 2h15 from Madrid to Salamanca.

Salamanca is a jewel in the crown of Castile. Universal, magnificent, wise, young and golden: this city is one of the destinations of the interior that is worth knowing for many reasons. Its Historical Center has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

With our local guide, you will discover why it is a city of knowledge thanks to its ancient University; crossroads since the Vía de la Plata crosses the city; the city of the Spanish language, because in the 15th century this town saw the birth of the first Grammar of the Castilian Language, which became a fundamental instrument for its expansion throughout the world.

Do not miss this monumental city, with its Old and New Cathedrals, the Casa de las Conchas (House of Shells), the most beautiful Plaza Mayor in Spain, as well as the golden effect that the light produces at dawn and dusk in the reddish stones of all its facades.

During the day, our guide will suggest the best place to have your lunch. Do not miss the Iberian ham, the hornazo (meat pie) or the chanfaina (rice-based local recipe)!

After the excursion, our driver will take you back to Madrid.
