As well as the Cathedrals and University, Salamanca counts with other historical sites, less known to the general tourist.

St. Stephen’s Monastery is a part of Spanish history. Home of Francisco de Vitoria (considered the father of International Law) and Cristobal Colón. Wander through its cloisters and rooms and feel the peace and atmosphere of a monastery still in use.

La Purísima church could be considered an art gallery. On its walls dozens of paintings decorate this particular church of Salamanca. Discover the singularity of San Francisco church, unique in the world, and La Veracruz chapel, where you’ll get to see many of the statues that parade during Easter (Our Holy Week has been declared of International Tourist Interest by UNESCO). In Las Dueñas convent, the nuns prepare traditional cookies, one of the typical sweets of Salamanca. Find out why.
