Overall Guide : Salamanca has many unique attractions that make it a very popular tourist attraction. There are many venues for entertainment including music, dancing, exhibitions and street shows. The Plaza Mayor is a large central square that is bustling with cafés and... more restaurants. Salamanca is also considered to be one of the most spectacular Renaissance cities in Europe and has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The buildings of this spectacular city are constructed of sandstone and glow when the sun begins to set. The Catedral Vieja and Catedral Nueva are impressive monuments dating back to the twelfth and sixteenth centuries. La Casa de las Conchas is a unique building dating back to the time of the Catholic Kings; it is studded with 350 sandstone shells. The Roman Bridge over Tormes is perhaps the oldest structure in the city dating back to 89 AD. One cannot help but marvel at the magnificent university buildings spread across the city.
