Salamanca Plaza Mayor
Square in Salamanca
Salamanca’s Plaza Mayor built between 1729 and 1755 is one of the most beautiful Baroque squares in Spain. The City hall is the focal point of the Plaza, with its five granite arches and a steeple decorated with allegoric figures.
Bullfights were held here well into the 19th century; the last ceremonial corrida (bullfight) took place in 1992. It’s now home to numerous bars and restaurants ideal for letting time go by and also boutique shops which are perfect if you’re browsing for souvenirs.
The square is particularly memorable at night when illuminated.
