A walk in the Old Town: House of Shells, the bullfighting area of the Plaza Mayor

Salamanca

Salamanca is located in the west of Spain 80 kilometers from the border with Portugal. Salamanca is one of the most beautiful cities in the country. Its Old Town is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The settlement on this place existed back in the third century BC when the Iberians lived here. The Carthaginian general Hannibal conquered the city in the third century BC. Salamanca endured Arab conquest, a period of prosperity and decline. Today it is worth taking a walk through the medieval Old Town and seeing the numerous architectural monuments. The city is rich in temples from different eras. Tourists explore the House of Shells from the XVI century, visit the main town square of Plaza Mayor, where they used to hold bullfights in front of the Town Hall. There is a bridge built by the Romans across the Tormes River, as well as the Clavero Tower remaining from the demolished defensive fortifications.
