Learn Spanish in Salamanca

Salamanca

A city carved from golden sandstone, Salamanca is a wonderfully relaxed base from which to learn Spanish.

Footsteps echo down Salamanca’s pedestrianised lanes. Almost all the old city is vehicle free, giving off an ambiance that’s as soothing as it is surreal. When walking around Salamanca you really feel like you’ve stepped back in time. But to which period in history?

That question suggests the beauty of this city. The buildings showcase 2000 years of design, all of it crafted from the same shimmering sandstone. Wine bars occupy Romanesque townhouses. Street guitarists play beneath cathedrals that are studded with sculptures. A single street takes you from Gothic to Renaissance to baroque. And the city’s main square is the finest in all of Spain.

This is a university city, which breathes a youthful energy into all the heritage. Free city events take place during most weeks of summer while outdoor terraces are ideal for joining the locals and trying out your Spanish. All this adds up to a city that can always reflect your mood. Whether you want to relax or want to party, there will be somewhere in Salamanca you can go. 

Plaza Mayor

Of all the squares in all of Spain none are as beautiful as the Plaza Mayor in Salamanca. This is the city’s focal point and almost all the old city streets will take you here, where there are terraces and restaurants galore.

Salamanca University

The lively university helps give Salamanca a youthful atmosphere, meaning there’s a buzzing and bustling energy to the historic streets, almost any week of the year. The university is an attraction in itself, including buildings from the 12th century.

Tapas

The best way to spend an evening in Salamanca is eating tapas. Hop between the different bars, grabbing a little bite in each. Or spend many hours in just one. You’ll be amazed how cheap and tasty it all is. Which is why you’ll probably eat tapas on the next day as well.

Old town

Every evening the old town glows a golden colour. Sunset bounces off the sandstone and there’s no prettier place to be. Explore and listen. You won’t hear cars here, you’ll only hear footsteps and Spanish chatter.

Nightlife

For a historic city Salamanca really knows how to party. With so many students around there’s an abundance of bars and clubs to try, each with its own distinct style. It can be loud and fun if you want it. The nightlife is also another chance to improve your Spanish conversation.
