Salamanca Maps and Orientation

(Salamanca, Castilla y León, Spain)

Capital of the Salamanca province, this city is best described as being on the western side of central Spain, located within the autonomous region of Castilla y León (Castile and Leon). The famous university city of Salamanca is filled with history and magical architecture, which is at its best within the Old Centre, on the northern banks of the Tormes River.

The Plaza Mayor forms the very core of Old Town Salamanca and was built between the years of 1729 and 1755, being one of the grandest and most lavish plazas that you will likely encounter anywhere in Spain. This part of the city lends itself to walking, with a good choice of accommodation and restaurants being based between the Plaza Mayor and the Tormes River.
