Casa de las Conchas, Salamanca

4.4
Casa de las Conchas is an historic building with an impressive exterior that now holds a public library. Over 300 shells dot the outside walls, here because they are the symbol of the Order of Santiago. Rodrigo Arias de Maldonado, a knight of the Order of Santiago, built this house. Once inside, find a patio where you can admire the archways supported by pillars and columns.

  • It is recommended because the facade is special and the inner courtyard although it is simple is very nice. Now it is an official site but the entrance is free and you can access with the dog thing that is appreciated.

  • First we visited it on our own, both outside and internally, and then with a group with a local guide who gave us all kinds of explanations about the construction of the house and the families that occupied it.

  • The claustro with its most elegant arches and the magnificent view to the towers of the clerecia is pure eye-candy 🤩
  • Marvelous and beautiful building, well mantained. Don't forget to visit the inside.
