My wife and I spent the day just wandering around the old city, including the central market. The entire city is amazing, especially the churches and the university centers. The Plaza in the city center is well worth an afternoon.

This is the most enchanting marketplace I have ever seen. Go there by night, when the lights go on and people find there spot on the floor. The atmosphere is amazing, i never get tired of the sight.

The main markets in any major city are normally worth a visit. Salamanca’s Central Market is a delight. Our tour didn’t give us much time there, but time enough to sample some local dried ham and in our case, buy some to take home.
