Salamanca, a small city of 165.000 inhabitants, is home of some of the most impressive architecture in Spain, and yet it remains a lively and dynamic community. The city is characterized by its unique yellow stone façades which fill the streets with color and light. The diverse architectural styles of its cloisters, churches and Renaissance palaces blend together in the streets and plazas of the old town. The striking engravings which characterize the Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals, the House of Shells, and the façade of the university, all reflect Salamanca’s historical importance, proving it worthy of its prestigious title given by UNESCO as a “Mankind Heritage Monument”.
