This is a short distance from all the other main sites but this was one of our favorites. It is beautiful with much to see. The facade is breathtaking

Stumbled upon this incredible monument walking outside the main old city. Definitely another star in the galaxy of sites in this wonderful city. The Altar is another standout. The history lesson about the Dominicans is by itself worth the visit. When we went there was...More

We had a full day of getting around the many historical buildings and this was very good, well presented with clear explanations of what the rooms were used for. Good views of the Stork nests.

Absolutely stunning cloisters were the highlight of our visit. The enormous music folios were fascinating, as were the reliquary cases meticulously crafted to display bone fragments of dozens of saints.

In a city which is filled with splendid churches and convents, this is one of the most interesting and "different". Its treasury held some fascinating objects.

We were staying at the hotel nearby and the first thing we did in Salamanca was visiting the convent. It reflected how religious orders used to live and pray many years ago. The clause is well kept and the portico and the interior are equality...More

We tried to see this convento. It was 17.25 and it closes at 18.00 hr. However it said ‘“last ticket at 17.15hr’. It has been our only visit to Salamanca in our life as we don’t live in Spain. It is unlikely we will ever...More
