Charmes towns

Salamanca hides wonderful charming villages and the most interesting to visit. Let yourself be surprised by its landscapes and gastronomy!  

    • La Alberca: Located right in the heart of the Sierra de Francia, it is one of the most representative towns in Spain because it was the first nationwide to be declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1940. It still maintains its centuries-old traditions and preserves the typical architecture of the place.

  • Ciudad Rodrigo: This town is located in a strategic enclave. Located very close to the Portuguese border, it gained a lot of relevance given the large number of defensive buildings that were built in ancient times. Currently, these have become the main points of interest.

  • Béjar: The old town of this town has been a Historic-Artistic Site since 1974. To get to know all its corners in depth, there is an urban route divided into two sections that allow you to know the Plaza de España, the Plaza Mayor and the wall, among other tourist attractions.


    • Candelario: Clinging to the side of a mountain and forming part of the most beautiful villages in Spain, Candelario stands out for its natural environment. Its charm has managed to attract the attention of cinema and television, since it has been the scene of series such as El Internado.


  • Ledesma: This village is the perfect combination of nature and history. Located next to the Tormes River, it has a signposted route for visitors to discover the main cultural attractions, as well as the hermitage of the Virgen del Carmen, the church of San Miguel and the Old Bridge. 


  • Mogarraz: This medieval village stands out for the historical essence that it still maintains over the years. From its cultural and religious traditions to its renowned civil architecture, all this is still present today in this Historic-Artistic Site located in the Natural Park of Las Batuecas and Sierra de Francia.
