Meet your guide in the sprawling Plaza Mayor and admire the square's restaurants and traditional Baroque architecture. Continue to the Clerecía, another classic example of Baroque architecture, to admire its bell towers and cloisters.

Next, admire the facade of the Casa de las Conchas (shell house), a Gothic-style building covered in ornate shells. Continue through the patios of the University of Salamanca, the oldest university in the Hispanic world.
