  • Lovely spot in the sun to reflect on one’s being. Made me realise how slowly people walk solely to annoy the younger population. Thankfully, cars 2 taught me to weave.

  • Restaurants are located inside this beautiful city square. Architecture is gorgeous and it is a great place to relax with a coffee or beverage.

  • Fabulous... full of atmosphere and drama... Great cafes to sit and enjoy the architecture and a coffee... constant flow of people and excitement. Also free public seating available. A must see/experience when visiting Salamanca (like a movie set, so well preserved and maintained)
  • A marvelous square with a great history. It is the heart of the city and a mandatory stop if you are in Salamanca. Just walk around and enjoy every small detail of the fachadas or take the breakfast or some tapas in any of the bar and restaurants around it, enjoying the views from the terraces...not the cheapest places in Salamanca but not expensive comparing to the quality
