To make the most of everything that Salamanca has to offer, we would recommend spending 5-6 days in the city, especially if your students will be having Spanish lessons at our partner language school.
Salamanca is a very compact city and so it's very easy to get around on foot, making it a very easy choice for a school trip.
Firstly, just a stroll around the historic centre is something you won't want to miss on your school trip to Salamanca, as it's been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Head to the Plaza Mayor to soak up the atmosphere, explore the city's two cathedral and try to find the frog hidden on the facade of the university. And make sure you don't miss the opportunity to visit the Casa de las Conchas, which is famously decorated with more than 300 shells.
There are lots of free things to do in Salamanca on your school trip. Of course, a self-guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site city centre, with all its beautiful golden architecture is completely free. And it's also completely free to soak up the atmosphere in Plaza Mayor. And if you want to explore the local gastronomy, head over to the historic Central Market.
