    The square sounds entertaining – just taking a seat and watching things happening around. What we usually do at visiting beaches. The entire place looks magnificent in night lights! Excellent shots

    Lovely square with golden hues. Interesting to know that it was also used for bull fighting. Was it open for public on other days? That girl & boy thing still happens in Spain. 🙂

  25. Such beautiful architecture! I love going to places that have so much beauty and history in them.

  26. This square is beautiful! Loved that you told us so many historical facts. Didn’t know that they used it for bull fighting. It must have been very nice to be able to pass the night here. 🙂

    What a grand plaza. Spain has so many beautiful cities and a vibrant culture. I haven’t heard of Salamanca. It certainly looks like a handsome city.

    What a gorgeous Plaza, especially at night! This reminds me a lot of the Grand Plaza in Mexico City.

  29. LOVED Salamanca. I only had a day there, but there were SO many details on all the building. I remember seeing the plaza for the first time and being totally amazed by the details!

  30. Plaza Mayor looks like a real awesome place with the grand architecture .Had always known of the Sonar Quilla but never knew anything about the Golden City, thanks for sharing.The plaza looks like a really happening hub irrespective of the time of the day.

  31. I love delving into one particular spot when I travel. There are always so many layers to it. I’ve been to a lot of Plaza Mayors in Spain, but never this one. It looks so stunning with its golden hue.

    Your night photos look amazing! Good job with them! I have not been to Salamanca, but it looks like a beautiful place to visit!

  33. When I first read Plaza Mayor, I thought you were talking about the one in Madrid. Only when I started reading, I realised that you were talking about the one in Salamanca. The architecture of both of them do look similar. Except that this one is Golden while the other one is bright red. I liked the quote of how they went looking for the perfect cheese. Loved the night photos especially.

  34. Such an elegant plaza. How lovely to stay there. I love the history too. The old squares were so vital at one time.

  35. This was a nice informative post. You pictures look nice – doing justice to the idea of the golden city.
