Salamanca Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
In the city, golden sandstone has lent itself to every major architectural style from Romanesque to baroque, even the modern quarters are largely built from it. The city has been declared "City of Mankind's Heritage" by UNESCO.
The city is large enough (180.000 inhabitants) to be able to offer the advantages of a real city, but at the same time it keeps the intimacy of a village. It is very easy to meet people - just got to the Plaza Mayor, one of the finest squares in Spain and meeting point for the Spaniards and foreigners alike.
