Constructed in the 18th century, the Plaza Mayor is the central meeting spot in Salamanca. Restaurants, shops, cafes, the Salamanca Town Hall, and clubs line the plaza and attract students and locals alike. Street entertainers captivate audiences. No matter what time of day it is, the Plaza Mayor is always alive with activity.
"Salamanca had a lot to offer, but one of my favorite places had to be under the clock in the plaza mayor. That is the central hub where everyone meets, makes plans, regroups during the night, etc. Everything starts and finishes at the clock! It's too bad that the clock can't freeze time and let us live that semester forever!" -Elise S., Barnard College-Columbia University
