Tour description

Thousands of people come to Salamanca wanting to drink its magic, enjoy the colorful and bustling university atmosphere, sing and dance with the prickly pears, experience the university's ancestral ceremonies, listen to the stories of the "Chinatown", stroll through its golden streets enjoying its magnificent architecture in the Plaza de Anaya, the Dominicans, the cathedrals, the Casa Lis, the Roman bridge... Without forgetting the music, the puppets, the mimes, minstrels, caricaturists, magicians and rogues that invade the pedestrian streets of Salamanca, giving it a special and unforgettable color and flavor.
We will make a special mention of the gastronomy with hundreds of restaurants, tapas bars and traditional taverns packed with people wanting to try all the delicacies that display counters full of pinchos and varied tapas that everyone loves.
On the Salamanca legends tour, you will experience all this and much more. Immerse yourself in the hidden salamanca. This journey allows us to travel to remote times and enter the winding and dark streets of the city, in corners that whisper unspeakable secrets. A city of fascinating historical figures. During the visit we will discover the life and deeds of enigmatic characters, brave knights, matchmakers, cruel torturers, Marchionesses who are resurrected, lovers who succumb to spells. Hear captivating true stories. We will be surprised by the adventures of the guides, hustlers, ranchers, and "fools from school", fear of cautious parents who guarded maidens like "gold in cloth", protecting them from the clever students who prowled them on the balconies.
GET EXCITED experiencing brawls like "Montescos y Capulets". We will live the bloody hatred between enemy families that challenged each other and killed each other in dark corners. Like the "Monroy and Manzano" who ended up with their throats cut and decapitated because of those eternal grudges.
