Where is it?
The apartment is located in a very quiet area with a lot of shops, supermarkets and bars. The monumental area of the city is only 15 minutes walking, but if you don't want to go by foot there is a bus stop just opposite our building. There is also a beautiful park opposite our billing with a children area.
Salamanca is part of the Spanish region known as Castilla y León (Castile and Leon). Despite being a medium-size city (with around 170.000 inhabitants), Salamanca is famous in the world for its culture and for its student atmosphere. In fact, the University of Salamanca is said to be the third oldest university in Europe, founded in 1218. Salamanca is known as the city of thought and knowledge, but here you will also find art and beauty. Salamanca is home to a magnificent ensemble of monuments, with outstanding examples of different architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque, Plateresque... The University, besides being one of Spain's oldest, is also one of the country's best examples of Renaissance architecture. Salamanca continues to be an important centre for cultural encounters and exchange in the present day too. Nightlife and "tapas" in Salamanca are wonderful, so Salamanca has the perfect combination of culture, fun and gastronomy.
Located in the western part of Spain, right besides the border with Portugal, Salamanca is in the inner part of the country, 200 kilometers west of Madrid (one hour and half by train). The airport of Valladolid (only at a one-hour drive) offers flights with Ryanair and Air France.
Tourism is probably the most outstanding industry of the city, thanks to its historical heritage and to the charm of the city itself, since Salamanca can be considered one of the most beautiful Spanish cities. It is also in Salamanca, where the purest Spanish (or "Castellano") is spoken, which makes the city a popular destination for students wanting to learn Spanish.
Salamanca has been declared World Heritage City by the Unesco, and in 2002, it was chosen as European City of Culture. Dance, music and art filled the streets of the city, and remain still today.
