Tour description

Discover the secret Salamanca with our free night tour!

On this free-price guided tour we will tour the most mysterious monuments and corners of the city of Salamanca , accompanied by an official tour guide.

With the darkness of the night and the historical buildings illuminated, you will enjoy a unique monumental environment while you immerse yourself in the history and legends of Salamanca.

After starting the visit in the Plaza de los Bandos , we will move to the House of Doña María la Brava.

We will continue the tour along Bordadores Street, where the House of Death is located . The façade of this 16th century palace-house hides four skulls whose meaning we will reveal. Later we will visit the Casa de las Conchas , the Convent of the Dominicans, the Salamanca Cave and, of course, the famous Huerto de Calixto y Melibea.

The next stops will be in the Patio Chico, in the General Archive of the Civil War and in the Casa Lis. We will end the visit at the Roman Bridge next to the statue of Lazarillo de Tormes.

Buena experiencia, y una ruta diferente a los sitios de interés más conocidos. Me habría gustado algún dato más de otros lugares aunque no sean justo del tour pero sí que eran de paso, ya que en nuestro caso solo estábamos en Salamanca media tarde y tampoco nos podíamos unir a más tours. Una mini explicación quizá cuando íbamos a su lado no habría estado mal. Por el resto muy bien! Es una ruta corta y con historias interesantes relacionadas con cada lugar.
