Not sure why, it is a beautiful building and with lovely cloisters but there is something about the actual church which did not appeal to either of us. It is certainly worth the visit, just not a place I would wish to return to.

Visiting this place is a must! In my view better than the old and new cathedral! The building is in great shape and tells her story itself. In every area or room you,ll see surprises.

During our 2 days in Salamanca, we enjoyed visiting this convent. Larger than initial impression, the convent reveals much beauty and history. Recommended.

The Convento de las Duenas was closed so we went here instead. It was just lovely. The carvings were marvelous. We might have missed it and I am glad we did not.

The cloister is so peaceful and well preserved. You can look up and see the storks nesting all over the elaborate rooftops. The church has the most ornate, golden altarpiece I have ever seen. Not to be missed.

Amazingly large worship space, great artwork. Lots to see - definitely worth the time you will spend there.

The entrance to the cloisters is amazing and with the long corridors must have been cool in summer. The garden is beautiful but small. The stairwell is beautifully done with patterns. One of the best stairwells I've seen but they are on a lean as...More

The Dominican friars may have taken a vow of poverty, but their order definitely did not. This is a massive place - huge imposing church, with a facade full of statues unharmed by passing wars and infidels (or well restored), and a very large two-storey...More
