Salamanca holidays

The university town of Salamanca has a rich history dating back to pre-Roman era. Hannibal Barca laid siege to the city during the Punic wars and the city was incorporated into one of the famous Roman transport roads. Modern day visitors are attracted to the city by its marvellous architecture including the Plazor Mayor which is the grandest and largest square in Spain, the old and new cathedrals which combine Gothic, baroque and renaissance stonework, and the Roman bridge across the River Rio Tormes.
