In Salamanca, the city of knowledge, declared a World Heritage Site in 1988, every street and corner is part of its artistic heritage, a heritage that is so rich that the city has even been called the “Little Rome”. The city’s role in the history of Spanish has led it to be included in the Route of the Castilian Language.
Its University, the oldest in Spain, has always remained an important cultural focal point. This is the city in which Antonio de Nebrija wrote the First Grammar Book of the Castilian Language (1492), Fray Luis de León gave classes and Miguel de Unamuno was Rector. Salamanca is also included in literary works, in books such as “La Celestina”, “El Lazarillo de Tormes” or “El Licenciado Vidriera”.
Salamanca, crossed by the river Tormes, is an open invitation to explore the city's streets, palaces and houses, to stroll around its majestic Plaza Mayor or main square, to visit the cathedrals and to discover the hidden secrets of the University. In short, Salamanca stands before the visitor, as a city bedecked in blue and gold, beautiful, well-cared for and vibrant.
