Sandstone architecture, an ancient university, fine Basque dining and a charming UNESCO-listed Old Town? It could only be Salamanca. Nestled in the historic Castile and Leon region, Salamanca boasts two magnificent cathedrals and a university that, though founded in the 1100s, still inspires vibrancy in city life today. Discover a wealth of palaces and religious buildings and then sit and rest with a drink in the Café Novelty, the oldest café in Spain, situated on the beautiful Plaza Mayor. From Basque tapas to haute cuisine, dining in Salamanca is a joy – the city even boasts more Michelin stars per square yard than anywhere else in the world.
